Hailing from northern Italy’s premium Piedmont, our best-selling Il Poeta wines showcase some of this region’s finest reds (like Barolo and Barbaresco). It’s fitting, then, that the inaugural white release give you a taste of Gavi, Piedmont’s No. 1 white.
Like all our Il Poeta exclusives, this elegant Gavi hails from grape grower Natale Seghesio and talented winemaker Paolo Sartirano. Quality-driven Natale (aka ‘il Poeta’) is among the last of Piedmont’s traditional Masuè sharecroppers, and not only tends to his vines, but famously writes a commemorative poem that tells the rhythm and story of the vintage (check it out on the label). And the 2016 vintage produced vibrant, ripe-fruited Cortese (the great grape of Gavi).
Working with Natale’s top-notch grapes, Paolo takes over in the cellar. As you’ll taste, he’s captured everything that’s beautiful about Gavi here – delicate white blossom aromas, crisp citrus characters, and ripe, orchard-fruit flavors. Balanced and refreshing, with a long, mineral-driven finish, Il Poeta will make a mouthwatering aperitif or fine partner for seafood, poultry dishes, and more.
