In the verdant landscapes of Gavi - AL, within the prestigious winemaking region of Piemonte, Italy, Bersano Winery crafts a wine that is a true embodiment of refinement and elegance: the Gavi D.O.C.G. As a renowned wine distributor, Wine Affairs, situated in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, is delighted to introduce this exquisite wine, showcasing the pinnacle of Bersano's winemaking expertise.
Gavi D.O.C.G. is made from the Cortese variety, a grape that is synonymous with the Gavi region's identity. The calcareous clay soil of the area plays a pivotal role in imparting the unique characteristics to the wine. Harvested in the second half of September, each bunch is a testament to the land's generous bounty and Bersano's commitment to quality.
The vinification process of Gavi D.O.C.G. is a testament to Bersano's dedication to preserving the natural essence of the Cortese grape. The best bunches are manually harvested and softly pressed, followed by fermentation of the must in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures. This meticulous process ensures that the sugar is entirely consumed, resulting in a wine that is both pure and expressive.
Aging in stainless steel tanks preserves the wine's freshness and aromatic profile. With an alcohol content of 12.5% abv, Gavi D.O.C.G. is both light and invigorating. It presents a bright straw yellow color with greenish reflections, inviting the connoisseur to a sensory experience like no other. The nose is typical and fragrant, with refined floral notes and intense fruity scents of pineapple and peach. On the palate, it is fresh, harmonious, and elegant, boasting a full and delicate body with a fruity and persistent finish.
Gavi D.O.C.G. by Bersano is an excellent aperitif and pairs beautifully with appetizers, seafood, and fish dishes. It is best served at a temperature of 8/10° C, allowing the wine's complexity and freshness to unfold beautifully. This wine is meant to be enjoyed young, capturing the essence of the Cortese grape at its most vibrant.
