PRICE ON 9/17/2014: $19.99

Winemaker's Notes:

Gavi is made in limited quanitites from Cortese grapes harvested from the hilly vineyards in Gavi. Pio Cesare carefully chooses the vintage time and imposes strict grape selection criteria to ensure the characteristics which give Gavi its unique style.

Gavi is a clear straw yellow, with green reflections. The bouquet is intense and ethereal, reminiscent of ripe fruit, green apples and moss. The palate is full and flavorful, yet soft, with a daring hint of green fruit. It is a harmoniously balanced wine.

About Pio Cesare:

Pio Cesare has been producing wine for more than 100 years and through generations. The tradition began in 1881, when Pio Cesare started gathering grapes in his vineyards and purchasing those of some selected and reliable farmers in the hills of Barolo and Barbaresco districts.

At Pio Cesare, there has always been a conviction that great wine can come only from the finest grapes and the winery's output has always been limited through adherence to the highest standards. Pio Cesare limits its production by using only the most mature and healthy grapes. The ripening of the grapes is carefully monitored and the harvest is rigidly controlled with each grape selected by hand.

Today, the estate is managed by Pio Boffa, great-grandson of Pio Cesare. Under his stewardship, the wines of Pio Cesare have become famous throughout the world. Great strides have been made in quality, and single vineyard offerings have dazzled the wine press.
