La Giustiniana Gavi


Gavi went through a rough patch in the 1980s and early 1990s – but who didn’t? Most of us wouldn’t want to be judged on how we carried on or dressed in the bad old days. Today, Gavi is one of the hottest white wines on the planet, with quality having shot way up in recent years. “La Giustiana” from Montessorais a quality drop, no doubt about it. Pale straw in colour, it’s a lot more aromatic than many would expect from a Gavi, showing pretty floral notes along with some flinty minerality. On the palate, it’s crisp with a great purity of fruit, showing peach and lime with a hint of that almond character so typical of Gavi.
