Bright, very delicate citrus, herbal and floral flavors, not a loud wine, but very pleasant.

Classic Italian crisp dry white in structure but with lovely citrus and elderflower notes. Winemaking in Gavi has evolved beyond recognition and is a much better expression of Cortese than was the case a generation ago.

Fresh and citrus-flavored, pale color. Easy to drink, quite mild.
