The Cortese grape always makes for etched and sharp white wines with a strong salty mineral component. That's exactly what you get with the 2022 Gavi Tenuta La Rocca. Made in stainless steel only, the wine offers fresh citrus, quince and unripe pear. Gavi is an Italian white wine worth discovering or rediscovering whatever your familiarity with the wine may be. This is an ample production of 40,000 bottles. ... More details

An easygoing, succulent white highlighted by apple, peach and orange flavors. The moderate finish leaves a tangy sensation. Drink now. 3,500 cases made, 1,200 cases imported.
Winery
Pale straw-colored and opens with a fragrant grapefruit bouquet with hints of pineapple and peach. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced between its acidity and flavors. The flavor profile is a mineral along with notes of green apple. Hints of lime, yellow grapefruit and a dash of white pepper. This finish is dry and shows very nice length. This Gavi is a really nice summer option to share with friends on a hot summer day. Great as an aperitif or with oysters, seafood, braised rabbit or baked chicken dishes.

Varietal: Cortese

The Cortese white wine grape varietal has been grown in and around south Piedmont, Italy, for at least five hundred years. Its delicate nature and moderate acidity have made it a favorite with people around the world, and it is most commonly served alongside the excellent seafood and shellfish dishes of the part of Italy it is traditionally grown in. Cortese grapes are easily identifiable by their lime and greengage flavors, and their generally delicate and medium bodied character. Cortese wines are also notable for their freshness and crispness, again, making them an ideal match for seafood. Whilst colder years often produce harsher, more acidic Cortese wines, practices such as allowing malolactic fermentation can solve any such problems and still produce delicious white wines made from this varietal.

Region: Piedmont

n Italy, the region most closely associated with excellent quality red wines and characterful sparkling wines is Piedmont. This alpine region is located in the north-west of the country, and features beautiful foothills of the impressive mountain range which forms the nearby border between Italy, France and Switzerland. Wineries in Piedmont work with the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which thrive in the warm, dry summers and cooler autumns, as well as the beautifully expressive Moscato grapes which are used for the sparkling Asti wines the region is famed for. For generations, these wineries have perfected the art of aging their red wines, and blending grape varietals to get the most out of each one, leading to a region known all over the world for the exceptional quality of its produce.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
