Product Description


Piedmont, Italy

Fontanassa Gavi Ca Adua is an excellent example of the well-known Gavi appellation from the Piedmont region of Italy. This white wine gem is made from 100% Cortese. Marco Gemme farms his 15 hectares using organic viticultural methods. The soil here is rocky and poor, with clay and sand rich in iron. Marco’s consulting oenologist is Gaspare Buscemi, a renowned character who espouses the use of spontaneous fermentation by ambient yeasts and a minimum of 6 months lees contact for stabilization (and complexity) so that the least possible amount of sulfur can be introduced just prior to bottling.

Fontanassa Gavi Ca Adua is yellow-gold in color with a nose of pears, apples, floral and mineral notes. It is full-bodied with bright acidity, good structure and rich flavors of apples, pears and stone fruit. The wine is well balanced to enjoy now and over the next 4-5 years. It is dry and smooth on the palate with a long, pleasing finish.

Enjoy Fontanassa Gavi Ca Adua with baked flounder, grilled chicken, fruit salads and mild cheeses.
