Gold Label Gavi DOCG 2011

La Marchesa Gavi Gold Label comes from a careful selection of estate-grown grapes which are then vinified at controlled temperatures and aged on the lees for six months to develop additional, complex layers. Also, a small portion of the wine is briefly aged in oak and blended with the rest of the wine to give the wine some extra depth.

Tasting Notes

Bright straw-yellow in color, aromas of ripe red apples and wildflowers complement undertones of nuts and sage. On the palate, firm acidity and a creamy texture combine to make this a complex, enjoyable wine.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with couscous, Hollandaise sauces, bacalhao a bras, and arancini.
