Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
This 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.
To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 1 year of purchase.
Matthew Jukes - Weekend, Daily Mail 10/08/2013
Of the 2012 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: "This is a very good deal on a feisty, crunchy,pear juice-scented gavi. Perfect for drinking on its own, ice cold, or with lighter nibbles and starters, this is a lovely summer wine and it deserves to have a good permanent spot in your fridge door!"
Jane MacQuitty - The Times 10/08/2013
Of the 2012 vintage, Jane MacQuitty said: "If I had to drink one bold, fragrant, nutty, stone-fruit-stashed Tesco Italian all summer long, it would be this gorgeous Gavi, made exclusively from the Cortese grape, which always punches well above its weight.”
Susy Atkins - Stella, Sunday Telegraph 15/09/2013
Of the 2012 vintage, Susy Atkins said: "There's mouthwatering (but not sour) acidity coursing through this, with a lean limeiness and green-herb hint. Dry, refreshing stuff..."
Fratelli Martini was founded in 1947 in the Langhe area. In the 70’s the company underwent substantial technological and production development, always focusing and developing indigenous Italian grape varieties. Today 85% of production is exported.
The Gavi zone comprises 11 communes totalling 1000 hectares. Made from the best Cortese grapes grown on prime hillside vineyards. Part of the crop is late-harvested; lending extra richness to the wine.
