Vigne del Pareto is a classic example of Gavi, one of Italy’s best known whites, with an international following. The region is a tiny enclave in prestigious Piedmont, close of course to famous Barolo. From 2020, it’s brimming with citrus freshness.

Gavi is much adored worldwide for its supreme stony fresh elegance and remains one of Italy’s most fashionable whites. With superior DOCG status since 1998, Gavi is today hailed as Piedmont’s white ‘jewel in the crown’. The appellation nestles in the Monferrato hills and uses chiefly the Cortese grape. Italian wine expert Burton Anderson describes Gavi as having a “cleanly refined scent and acutely dry flavour with pronounced acidity countered by a vague sensation of fruit. In short, an exemplary fish wine.” Our Buyer for Italy Leo is a big fan of Gavi and its delicate herbal and citrus character, and was impressed by this 2020 from the Vigne del Pareto estate. It’s a great friend to all sorts of seafood and makes an appetising aperitif.
"Best white I've tried in a long time. My go to white! Smooth, crisp and clear. Highly recommended"
