Michele Chiarlo Gavi le Marne 2022

Gavi, Piedmont, ItalyGavi le Marne is grown on hillsides of clay marls between the Ligurian Sea and the Apennine mountains, taking advantage of both unique climates. 2022 was a warm and dry year, but measures were taken to protect the fruit and keep the wine fresh. The vegetation was left to grow wild, and the fruit was picked a week early. The grapes are native fermented in stainless steel and aged for three to four months on lees there. The result is a refreshing white with bright florals and almonds on the nose. The palate mixes ripe golden apples, citrus, and warm bread, and the finish is savoury and lean. Spaghetti vongole is the perfect match.Tasted: 31 October 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
