Marchesi di Barolo Gavi di Gavi DOCG 2018
An ideal fruity, fragrant and refreshing treat.
Marchesi di Barolo Gavi di Gavi DOCG 2018 is an ideal fruity, fragrant and refreshing treat. Straw-yellow colour with greenish reflections. A golden apple and chamomile flower explosion on the nose. The dry and full-bodied palate is remarkably sapid, balanced, harmonious and smooth. Its lively acidity and powerful mineral persistence complements fresh flavours of golden apples, pears and dried fruit.
100% Cortese entirely from the Rovereto di Gavi district, the best terroir of the entire production zone. The vines are grown with Guyot (VSP trellised) system on hills with moderate inclines and clayey-calcareous soils.
After a manual harvest and soft pressing of the grapes, fermentation occurs at a low temperature in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. No ageing in wooden barrels in order to preserve the bright colour, fresh and fragrant aromas of the wine. Gavi wine shows its finest characteristics in its first years, so drink it soon!
