12X Villa Sparina Gavi Di Gavi DOCG, 2018
Delicately scented (honeysuckle, herbs and ripe pears) and full and rich on the palate.
"The 2018 Villa Sparina Gavi di Gavi (2) from Piedmont is as fine a G di G as I’ve had. Made from 100 per cent Cortese, it comes in a bottle based on Roman amphorae, the remains of which they stumble upon in the vineyards, and is delicately scented (honeysuckle, herbs and ripe pears) and full and rich on the palate. It’s bone dry, though, and Tom reckons it’s akin to Chablis on a vespa. £19 down from £20."
Jonathan Ray, Spectator Wine
Villa Sparina is a family estate in the Gavi district of Piedmont, an area that has specialised in growing Barbera and Dolcetto and most notably the white grape Cortese for more than 1,000 years.
