Michele Chiarlo Gavi le Marne 2018

Gavi, Piedmont, ItalyThis cortese comes from clay marls on hillsides between the Ligurian sea and the Apennine mountains, afforded the benefits of both. After a native ferment, this aged 4 months on lees in stainless, preserving the freshness. Almond, elderflower, green melon, white grapefruit, wild lemon stream across a streamline palate, juicy with citrus, yet sleek and lean via the cortese grape. The finish is snappy, dry, and brisk, welcoming glass after glass of simple shellfish or braised spring artichokes.Tasted: 05 March 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
