Most Gavi is expensive and seldom worth the money; Paola and Luigi Lorenzi fly in the face of this unfortunate tradition by coaxing plenty of personality from their ten hectares of Cortese. Tassarolo is the highest commune in the DOCG and La Zerba’s vineyards are perched on a south-facing outcropping of iron-rich soil that looks south to the often snow-capped Ligurian Alps. The combination of low yields and a protracted harvest over a three-week window encourage complexity and the result is a classic Gavi: light in alcohol, delicately floral with a hint of candied fruit all carried along on a wave of breezy acidity. There are two versions, we’ve opted for the ‘Terrarossa’ cuvée sourced from a plot of 30 year-old vines but both are a delight.
