Gavi di Gavi San Silvestro.

Gavi di Gavi San Silvestro.

Gavi di Gavi San Silvestro 2010.

Gavi, Piemonte-Italy.

Grape Variety-Cortese.

12.5% ABV.

Clear and pale. Very distinctive nose of apples, pears and elderflower. On the palate, light and fresh. Some pepper, pear with good, mid range acidity and a decent length.

I’m not one for lighter style wines. It just doesn’t suit my palate but this wine blew me away. As far as writing a tasting note goes, it was easy. This is a beautiful wine. Soft, elegant. The level of fruit mixed with the acidity makes it a very easy wine to drink. Pull up a chair. Sit in the sun and pour yourself a glass. It’s stunning. Throw in some ice with a couple of slices of orange or lemon and picture yourself sitting on a beach in the Mediterranean.

Drink on its own or with light summer dishes, salads, pasta etc.

£9.99 at North and South Wines.

Supplier Hallgartendruitt.
