The Gavi DOCG is the wine that has always coincided with the historic identity of Villa Sparina. A great classic obtained from the Cortese grapes. Wines made from Cortese (particularly those from the DOCG Gavi) have long been favored by restaurants in the southern neighboring port of Genoa as a wine pairing with the local seafood caught off the Ligurian coast. Cortese wines tend to be medium bodied with notes of limes and greengage and express truth and territory with its unique strength and freshness. Lively, fresh and fruity, this Gavi donates harmonic flavours and a contemporary spontaneity.
While typically made in a fresh and unoaked style, by law Gavi can come in many forms: frizzante, spumante, metodo classico and méthode ancestrale. But most producers maintain a conventional winemaking practice of temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel.
It is a friendly and flavorful white wine from Italy. A pale yellow in color, it offers a floral bouquet with inviting citrus notes that echo on the palate. On the nose, you will find aromas of peach and apple with notes of flowers. It has light tannins and high acidity. The taste is fresh, youthful, light, fruity and hit of grass, earthy, soft with good length and harmony, cool and easy drinking. It has a flavour of lemon, orange zest, and rose blossom.
