Description

Villa Sparina Gavi di Gavi DOC 2018

Villa Sparina Gavi di Gavi perfectly reflects the historic identity of Villa Sparina. Bright yellow colour. A delicate bouquet of spring blossoms, peaches, lemon citrus and a hint of thyme lifts from the glass. Lively and fresh, this Gavi is soft on the palate. Full and rich flavours melding a core of peach, lemon and grapefruit with layers of stoney minerals, honey and a hint of white pepper. Closes with a gorgeous mineral finish.

100% Cortese. The grapes come from Villa Spainra’s estate vineyards in the municipality of Gavi. The vineyards have clay and marl soil compositions, are mainly south or south-west facing and sit at an altitude of 250–300 metres.

Hand-harvest and soft crushing of the grapes. Fermentation for 3 weeks at a controlled temperature of 18°C in stainless steel tanks.

 

Fun Fact: The unmistakable Villa Sparina bottle was developed together with designer Giacomo Bersanetti. The striking amphora-shaped bottle drew inspiration from an ancient Roman relic discovered on the estate’s property during a period of restoration. It has become a symbol for the estate – “elegant but strong, modern but with an ancient touch”.

 

We love ourselves a good Gavi but adore unusual whites made with indigenous grapes too! Check out Baia’s Wine Krakhuna White 2020.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

 This is always a top Gavi and 2018 doesn’t disappoint. Loads of thyme, parsley, citrus and daffodils. Lovely density and spiciness add to the otherwise sleek and finely tuned palate.

Spring blossom and white stone fruit aromas shape the nose along with a whiff of botanical herbs. The savory palate doles out green apple, lemon drop and a tangy saline note alongside crisp acidity. It closes on an almond note.
