Gavi Cortese 2018

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a Gavi and honestly forgot how much I’m taken by them! Nose is a little floral but somewhat closed, palate is mineral galore with prominent green apple overtones, lemon, with a tiny hint of maybe pineapple? Perfect with spicy prawns and sautéed whole trout. Delicious! — 17 days ago

Fresh, clean and a bit almondy. Is that a word? — 2 months ago

I understand. But almonds is not something i’d expect in a Gavi?
A bit older than aversie?

I would guess it’s oxidation if your getting almond notes

Riserva Gavi

Better Gavi than the 8.7 rating most gave it. A classic piedmont balance with stone and fruit and a good value. Had with fresh peas, pasta, pecorino and pancetta. Perfect pairing as the spices really come through on the wine. — 4 months ago
