Aromas of apricot and white spring flower lift out of the glass. The apricot note follows through to the palate, along with yellow peach, honeydew melon and almond, all framed in bright acidity. This one closes on a flinty note.
“Delicate 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.”
“This pretty white from Piedmont displays a floral fragrance of Spanish broom and acacia flower. The palate offers Golden Delicious apple, peach and mineral notes along with a crisp and refreshing finish.”
“The estate’s 2011 Gavi Gold Label stands apart from the White Label for its greater textural depth and creaminess. It, too, is appealing and beautifully balanced. Hints of peach, pear and flowers wrap around the generous finish.”
“The 2010 Gavi Gold Label is a slightly richer, rounder wine than the White Label. Apricots, white peaches and jasmine are some of the notes that wrap around the textured finish. The Gold Label is partially aged in oak, which helps to shape the wine, but without overpowering it. This is another solid showing from La Marchesa.”
“The 2010 Gavi White Label is a pretty entry-level white. It shows excellent balance at this level, with expressive aromatics and a clean, refreshing finish. There is nothing fancy going on here, but this is a delicious white ideal for informal drinking over the next year or so.”
