Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Gavi is made in limited quantities 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 that give Gavi its unique style. The harvest is completed during the first week of October. The grapes are soft-pressed, using checked temperature fermentation, to enhance development of aromas and fresh and fruity characteristics. The wine is bottled during the month of March.

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.
