Gavi is not a grape variety. It's a city. Cortese is the grapes variety and it's grown all around the Piedmont region where the city of Gavi is situated.
But the BEST Cortese comes from the vineyards around Gavi. And when we say best, we mean seriously best. And for my money, this little bugger is the best of the best. Beautifully light combo of pears, apples and a touch of white peach, this is also zippy, zingy and totally refreshing.
