" I have no idea about the miasma of Gavi labelings, Gavi di Gavi, Gavi dei Gavi, Cortese di Gavi, Gavi del Comune di Gavi! All I know is this is a sensational wine! This wonderfully delicate white wine has structure, it has depth, it has length, balance, (I thought I'd never say this about Gavi but) it has complexity! The wine has a bit of a chalky grip that gives the wine balance, adds a mineral note, the fruit is mature but not overripe, hints of pear, nutmeg and tarragon are coupled with a verve that just makes this wine sing. Perfect for sole or snapper, pesto, roasted chicken, ham sandwich for lunch (trust me) it is just really good. (Greg St.Clair, K&L Italian buyer)"
