La Smilia Gavi di Gavi 2022 75cl
It shows a delicate aroma of ripe peach and pear on the nose with hints of pineapple and lychees. On the palate it offers full aroma of lime and tropical fruits and a slight honeyed edge held together by stony minerality and medium acidity. A long and creamy almond finish.
Located 20 km south the town of Gavi at 280 metres above sea level, near the Ligurian Apennines, La Smilla's vineyards are perfectly placed to produce exquisite Cortese grapes. Danilo Guido and his wine-making history is strictly linkedwith the history and traditions of the nearby Liguria region. He manages his vineyards planted on steep hills in a traditional way with limited use of machinery. The cellar is located in the centre of the village of Bosio and has maintained the characteristics of the past: the underground section of the cellar still houses some characteristic old concrete square-shaped barrels, while in the more modern section steel vats and French oak barrels can be found.
