Gavi is a distinguished white wine produced in the Piedmont section of northern Italy. The wine is named for the town at the heart of the region. But now for a little story time (perhaps while you sip a glass of this fruity and honeyed, dry wine):
Once upon a time, around the 5th century, there was a beautiful, fair princessa named Gavia. She was the daughter of Clodimir, King of the Franks (son of Clovis I). Long before anyone knew what Stockholm Syndrome was, she fell in love with one of her guards, and he asked for her hand in marriage. When they asked Clodimir’s permission, he forbade the marriage, saying it was beneath her class to marry him. But they were hopelessly in love, so they went to whatever the French Medieval equivalent of Vegas was, and, because this is a fairy tale after all, were able to cross the Alps and settle in a remote location in a tiny village on the fringes of the kingdom, in what is now Italy. They eluded the king’s troops for a long time. Read more »

  • Pio Cesare Cortese di Gavi 2013


    Nice, light, crisp and refreshing Gavi from Pio Cesare. The nose is light with a little funky lemon wax scent. On the tongue there's plenty of light lemon cream, not quite ripe pear and a bit of lemon grass. The acidity is medium plus and the finish medium minus. Not bad for a mid-week, summertime quaff.
