A remarkably complex and food friendly white from the Piedmont region of northern Italy. Gavi being the appellation and Cortese the variety, are not well known outside of Italy. Even though this appellation may be somewhat obscure the wines produced here are excellent and quite affordable. Easy to pair with any seafood and wonderful with linguine pesto and goat cheese. Drink within the next two years.
