Apricots, full-bodied, great with pumpkin soup. If you love red wine, this is the white wine for you. The Cortese grape in the Gavi vineyards has high acidity, which gives it the full body. It is also well-priced for a Riserva wine.

Very rich, almost oily on the nose, packed full of tropical and stone fruit aromas intertwined with fennel and hay.. Richness carries through the palate with honyed flavors of fangerine, lemon, apple white tropical fruit. Long finish where the fruit stays til the end.
