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.
Light straw-yellow in color, aromas of ripe apples and tree fruits complement undertones of wildflowers and herbs. On the palate, it is fresh and lively with a dry finish that is underscored by minerality.
While it makes a great sipping wine, this wine pairs well with shellfish, velouté sauces, sardine appetizers, and lightly-grilled Dover sole.
