Banfi Principessa Gavia Gavi

I’ve never had a Gavi before so had no idea what to expect … Pale straw in color with a citrus nose. on the mid palate the wine displays some nice lime and mild pink grapefruit notes along with some mild peach … On the medium length finish the citrus notes hang around as well as some nice minerality and crisp dry acidity. This is not as sharp as say a New Zealand or Chilean Sauv blanc can be, but not as smooth or elegant as a Bordeaux Sauv blanc. It’s a nice food friendly wine that will pair well with lots of foods including seafood. I would give it an -88 … For price, not a bargain by any means …. but an interesting wine for sure!

Product Details

Legend suggests that Principessa Gavia, daughter of the King of the Franks, fell in love with a soldier and the two fled to northwest Italy to escape her disapproving father. The village and wine of Gavi are named after her. This refreshing wine shows herbs, mineral and grapefruit notes. A great sipper or aperitif, it will be a fine match for salads, seafood antipasti, or lighter fish dishes.
