Piedmont is best known for its red wines, but Gavi, located in southern Piedmont and bordering Liguria, is home to white wines that have long been favoured by the neighbouring port of Genoa to accompany the region’s seafood. Founded in 1890, Castellari Bergaglio is a family-run winery that Gambero Rosso hails as “one of the appellation’s principal reference points.”
Bright pale straw to straw colour with a watery hue. Aromas of pear, red apple skin and quince are trailed by wet slate notes. Mouthfilling pear and red apple skin flavours carry good volume across the palate with subtle lime, quince and slatey mineral characteristics lingering through a dry saline finish that shows ample length and traces of almond.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
Alc. 12.5%
