2017 Etichetta Oro Tenuta la Marchesa

Grapes Cortese
Colour White
Origin Italy, Piedmont
ABV 12.5%

The estate's top cuvée or Gold Label (Oro) is classic Gavi from their very old vineyards. The big difference here is that the wine spends six months on the lees adding extra weight, a hint of smoky spice, some crisp apricot fruit and more texture, but this is delicately done and just adds to the whole. L&S (Sep 2018)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Aroma: to the nose it expresses hints of ripe apple and wild flowers but also light minerality. Taste: complex bouquet linked to long ageing in steel, great structure: a great Gavi for enthusiasts, with a pleasant minerality. Pairings: suitable for all types of fish but also for refined aperitifs.Winemaker's notes(Sep 2018)

Tenuta la Marchesa

The villa 'La Marchesa' after which this estate is named was built in 1750 by the owners at the time, a Genovese banking family, in order to keep their daughter happy for her forthcoming wedding day. It is now in the hands of the Giulini family, who have installed a brand new wine cellar with the most up to date vinification techniques, whilst maintaining the character of the original villa. Situated a mere 40 km from the sea, the soil on the estate is a clay/limestone mix and greatly influences the character of its wines. You can visit their website here.
