Hey, I'm sure I've heard of that wine before... isn't that the same gavi as before? Yes it certainly is but with a gorgeous new label! Let's have a bit of a read about our wine of the day...
Donato Lanati, one of Italy's best young consultants, began working with La Giustiniana at the beginning of 1998. His indelible stamp of quality has become increasingly evident in recent years. The changes wrought in the winery by Lanati are now being matched with the improvements being made in the vineyard, where better grapes are giving purer, richer and better balanced wines. The entire estate covers 110 hectares in the heart of the commune of Rovereto in Gavi, of which 40 are under vine. Two single vineyard wines are produced, both of which are unoaked so the character of each vineyard shines through.
La Giustiniana Gavi di Gavi 'Lugarara' 2017 @ £15.95 - Buy it here!
A straw yellow wine with hints of green. Lightly perfumed with fresh green apples and pears on the nose. The palate is riper with ripe, golden apples, fresh almonds and honey but still has the characteristic lively twist on the finish found in good Gavi.
We've had this crowd-pleaser for a long time and think it's here to stay for the moment! Cheers!
