Tuesday Quick Sip – 2006 Bersano Gavi

2006 Bersano Gavi

Wine Information –

Region: Piedmont, Italy

DOCG: Gavi

bersanogaviMy Tasting Notes –

Nose: apple, wet hay, honeycomb

Taste: apple, honeydew, mineral/slate

Mouthfeel: full body, not overly acidic

Finish: lots of apple and minerality, slightly tart

Although tart at the finish, not as crisp as I was expecting across the palate. An enjoyable sip but too much apple on the nose and palate and not a whole lot of the other flavor components mentioned, but the mineral and slate notes were nice towards the finish. This could have been an off bottle but there are better Gavi examples out there.

Cheers!
