Tenuta la Marchesa Gavi White Label 2015


SKU 02183


The story goes that as the family was making preparations for the marriage of a daughter, the bride-to-be let slip that the family home was not quite as she had hoped for the wedding. The Marques immediately decided to build a lavish villa in the middle of the property. He called this landmark "La Marchesa," and today, this name is borne by all the wines coming from the estate. The grapes for the La Marchesa Gavi White Label are pressed immediately following the harvest without adding any sulphites.

Wine EnthusiastDelicate aromas of honeydew melon, white spring flower and a whiff of lemon lead the nose on this refreshing white. The lively, straightforward palate offers green apple, white peach and a flinty note alongside bright acidity.
