Last Monday 9 May, the first leg of the Gavi World Tour was held in Rome.
The Great White Wine of Piedmont splendidly shone among the halls of the Aleph Rome Hotel. The walk-around tasting of more than 70 labels and two masterclasses allowed the specialized press and industry operators to explore the rich personality of this inclusive and sophisticated white wine.
The two masterclasses – Gavi DOCG, Exploring the Latest Vintages and The Hidden Depths of Gavi DOCG, the Ageing Potential of Piedmont’s Great White – conducted by Walter Speller from Jancisrobinson.com and focusing on the unique Cortese grape and its aging potential, have both been successfully “sold out” among attendees.
This first leg in Rome has allowed the Consorzio to show both opinion leaders and industry operators an extraordinary and full overview of one Piedmont’s most intriguing denominations.
