2020 Villa Sparina – Gavi (750ML)
ORIGIN | Piedmont, Italy
James Suckling rated 91/100 in 2020 – “Aromas of ripe, even cooked lemons, together with lime peel and wet stone. Medium-bodied with a lightly spicy touch to the palate and an intense finish, where it all comes together. Delicious. Drink now.”
TASTING NOTES | Bright yellow color, delicate bouquet of dried pineapple and peach. Full and rich in flavor, yet mineral and refreshing. Fine aromatic flavor to the end.
WINEMAKER NOTES | Located in Monterotondo, the heart of Gavi DOC, Villa Sparina was founded by Mario Moccagatta. The winery is currently run by Mario, along with his two sons Stefano and Massimo. Head enologist Beppe Caviola, one of the foremost winemakers in Piemonte, has brought Gavi to new heights exploring the full potential of the Cortese grape. All of the Villa Sparina wine are produced from estate grown fruit and are estate bottled. Harvest is delayed until the last possible moment, giving the wines great concentration and a wonderful balance of acidity and fruit.
