Cossetti Gelsomora Gavi 2019
Clementina Cossetti is the fourth-generation winemaker at the 30-hectare San Colombano estate in the heart of Asti, where her family has been farming for well over a century. It was in 1891 that Giovanni Cossetti first built a winery, and his son Clemente began achieving wider renown for their wines in the early years of the twentieth century. Within the current vineyards, where vines are on average 30-years-old, the yields are kept low and historically Barbera has performed exceptionally.
Their Gelsomora Gavi is a gorgeously fruit-forward style of white from this famous region. The hand-picked Cortese grapes are crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks to dryness. It's intensely straw yellow coloured, with fresh and persistent aromas of flowers and fresh stone fruit. Dry and refreshing, it shows why Gavi became so popular in the first place!
