Importer notes: "100% Cortese. First released in 1966, this is the original or benchmark Gavi, which brought fame to the then small wine producing region and showed the world the potential in quality of white wines from Italy. Sourced from the estate’s oldest Cortese vines, averaging over 60 years of age, these are also among the oldest in the appellation. Soils are of volcanic origin, composed of calcareous-clay with veins of chalky limestone similar to that found in Champagne and Chablis, giving a characteristic flinty character. Tasting Notes: Pale straw in color with delicate greenish highlights. Intense lemon citrus fruit with floral and flinty notes on the nose, comparable to the best wines from Chablis. Medium bodied, with apple and more citrus fruit on the palate as well as notes of almonds and hazelnuts. The finish is crisp, refreshing and long."
