Nicola Bergaglio Gavi di Gavi La Minaia 2014

£12.99

 

 TASTING NOTE

Pale gold in colour with flashes of diamond brilliance, it has a light, fresh, mineral and citrus bouquet. The palate is crisp and dry, with a hint of ripe pears and a complex array of red and green apples, the finish is mouthwateringly refreshing and lengthy.

The vines are planted at an altitude of 300m a.s.l with a westerly exposure. The average age of the vines are roughly 30 years old, which are planted at a density of 3800 per hectare, making use of the guyot training system. The wines are not irrigated and are manually harvested. Lightly fined with casein - suitable for vegetarians.

Light to medium-bodied wine with lime freshness, from one of the leading family-owned producers of quality Gavi di Gavi.

Gavi has become one of the most sought-after premium Italian wines. The DOCG of Gavi del comune di Gavi (or ‘Gavi di Gavi’) lies on chalky soil – the perfect terroir for the Cortese grape which produces minerally citrus wines with elegance and finesse. Bergaglio’s ‘La Minaia’ is considered the first cru in this denomination – and his 2009 was rewarded with the Tre Bicchieri (three glasses) award from the Gambero Rosso. With 15 hectares of new vineyards and a new cellar, it is all systems go for this exceptional producer.
