Castello di Tassarolo Gavi ‘Spinola’ 2020
The Gavi ‘Spinola’ is the estate Gavi, 100% Cortese from vineyards around the Alborina lake. Ferment takes place in Stainless Steel and care is taken to preserve the fleshy fruit flavours of the carefully tended grapes. Cortese can yield very heavily but yields are kept under control, this being evident in the concentrated core of the wine and the fantastic breadth and aromas of lime, orange blossom, flowers and greengage.
