Tasting Notes

This silver medal winner is a wine with crisp, fresh fruit from Gavi, a region in Piedmonte, northern Italy.

Made from the Cortese grape, it is distinctly lemony, with a tangy nectarine flavour too.

Utterly delicious, this makes a great aperitif or partner to simply grilled fish.

Storage Instructions

To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 1 year of purchase.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2013 vintage, The Wine Gang said: The lemon-grove fragrance and lemon peel and juice tang of the Cortese variety are matched with a juicy middleweight palate in the latest vintage of this reliable Piedmontese white, a good match for rich and creamy fish dishes.

Of the 2013 vintage, Jane MacQuitty said: "Made exclusively from Piedmont's cortese grape, this fresh 2013 vintage delivers mouthwatering, soft, spicy, floral-scented fruit, complete with a long tangy finish: the perfect May apéritif".

Of the 2013 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: “The new vintage of this wine list favourite is bursting with vivacious citrus notes. I heartily recommend it for all-purpose entertaining, on account of its vast food-matching skills and joyous flavour.”

Of the 2013 cintage, Matthew Jukes said: "I am a huge fan of Tesco's own label Gavi. It is one of the best value, all purpose white wines in the UK and a one-wine master class in the attributes of the beguiling cortese grape variety. Thrilling and downright delicious."

Matthew Jukes - Weekend, Daily Mail 07/06/2014

Of the 2013 vintage, Jane Parkinson said: “I have chosen the finest Gavi, which has just as much panache as all French wines do, but with the added attitude of Italy. Gavi comes from Piedmont, that northern Italian region that was once ruled by France, and with that historical link, you can really see the sophistication in a lot of the regions wines. Of course Gavi is also a really popular wine style on restaurant wine lists, partly because it’s easy to say, but more importantly because it’s a really versatile wine style. It’s lovely and fresh, like cutting wedges of apple and lemons. But it’s lovely and mellow as well, it just glides along, with a citrus tang which punches through.”
