Rovereto di Gavi

La Giustiniana 'Lugarara' Gavi di Gavi 2019, Piedmont, Italy

£11

Yellow as straw, with a light hue of green. Gentle aromas of fruit and stone on the nose, along with zesty lime, which give way to a subtle scent of fresh green apples. A strong balance of the palate, with a lack of overpowering acidity and a welcome sense of structure. Lingering finish of almond hints.
