Tenuta La Marchesa 2011 “Gold Label” Gavi

Posted by Keith Wallace

Northeastern Italy wine review

The wine region of Gavi has had its ups and downs. Quality hit a significant low in the nineteen-nineties with the push toward mass production.  We are now seeing a new high after a decades-long push to rehabilitate the region’s reputation.

Fresh and appealing, the wine pops with white flavors: peaches and flowers, to be precise. It is deftly balanced, offering not just the brightness of acid but its opposite as well: fleshy and creamy ripeness.

Fresh pear and white pepper are found in the long finish, along with spicy barrel notes.
