Pio Cesare Cortese di Gavi 2011
Gavi is a clear straw yellow, with green reflections. The bouquet is intense and ethereal, reminiscent of ripe fruit, green apples and moss. The palate is full and flavorful yet soft, with a daring hint of green fruit. It is a harmoniously balanced wine.
Gavi is made in limited quantities from Cortese grapes harvested from the hilly vineyards in Gavi. Pio Cesare carefully chooses the vintage time and imposes strict grape selection criteria to ensure the characteristics that give Gavi its unique style. The harvest is completed during the first week of October. The grapes are soft-pressed, using checked temperature fermentation, to enhance development of aromas and fresh and fruity characteristics. The wine is bottled during the month of March.
