Castellari Bergaglio Gavi 'Fornaci' Cortese 2009 (Piedmont)
Perhaps it is because I like the Cortese grape, something the Lost Valley winery in Victoria provided my introduction to.
This 2009 Gavi (a part of Piedmont close to Liguria) comes from the Castellari Bergaglio winery and the 'Fornaci' is a reference to a brick furnace that used to be found on their site. Tasted over three days, with and without food, and looked best on the second day.
Brought in by Trembath & Taylor.
Cork, purchase, $28-35 for the current vintage which is the 2012 pictured, 13% alcohol, website here.
