Villa Sparina Gavi di Gavi DOC
100% Cortese. The grapes come from Villa Spainra's estate vineyards in the municipality of Gavi. The vineyards have clay and marl soil compositions, are mainly south or south-west facing and sit at an altitude of 250–300 metres.
Hand-harvest and soft crushing of the grapes. Fermentation for 3 weeks at a controlled temperature of 18°C in stainless steel tanks.
We love ourselves a good Gavi but adore unusual whites made with indigenous grapes too! Check out Baia’s Wine Krakhuna White 2020.
AWARDS & ACCOLADES
This is always a top Gavi and 2018 doesn’t disappoint. Loads of thyme, parsley, citrus and daffodils. Lovely density and spiciness add to the otherwise sleek and finely tuned palate.
Spring blossom and white stone fruit aromas shape the nose along with a whiff of botanical herbs. The savory palate doles out green apple, lemon drop and a tangy saline note alongside crisp acidity. It closes on an almond note.
