LCBO Vintages Special Offer

Sourced from vineyards selected for their choice location in the Gavi region, the Cortese that makes up Pio Cesare’s Gavi lends a spicy, salty, fragrant profile to the finished wine. These growers have worked with the family winery for generations. Fermented in cool stainless steel tanks, then aged in stainless steel with extended lees contact, it’s an elevated expression of Gavi DOCG: fresh and clean and rich and complex. Surprising to some, this is a wine with great aging potential.

“An earthy aroma gives way to apple, melon, almond and straw flavors in this expressive white. Firm and chalky on the lingering finish. Drink now.
