Lombardo Vigne di San Martino Gavi di Gavi 2012
"Made from hand-selected Cortese grapes that were grown in volcanic limestone and argillaceous marl. The grapes are pressed whole and left to macerate on their skins for a short period of time. The juice sits on the fine less for a duration of three months before resting in the bottle for three months. The nose is delicate but persistent with aromas of fresh-cut hay and acacia. On the palate this light-bodied wine is fresh and harmonious with bracing minerality and a lingering finish." -Importer
External Reviews for Lombardo Vigne di San Martino Gavi di Gavi
A classic Gavi from an attention detailed producer. Grapes are hand-picked and manually selected, macerated on the skins to extract as much color as possible, then left on the lees five months and aged in bottle for three. All this leads to a wine with character - a Gavi with more interest. Lightly honeyed, supple and with a lingering lemondrop finish. Enjoy with fowl and fish, especially in white wine and butter sauces.
