Castello Banfi Principessa Gavia Gavi 2019
Pale yellow color with shades of green. The perfume of boxwood combines with the flower notes of jasmine and the fruity aromas of melon and white peach. On the palate, the wine's pleasant sapidity supports its eminent drinkability.
In the 6th century, Principessa Gavia fell deeply in love with a soldier. Her father, Clodimir, King of the Franks, forbade their marriage, so the lovers eloped to a remote village in Northwestern Italy. Charmed by the local white wine, the newlyweds revealed their identity and were brought before the king. He realized their happiness and forgave the couple. The king blessed their union and named after his daughter, both the village and its wine. It is said that their romance lives on in each glass of Principessa Gavia Gavi.
