Coppo La Rocca Gavi

Gavi DOCG, Piemonte

Gavi, a classic, white Piedmontese wine, is made entirely from the Cortese grape, one of the region’s oldest native varieties. Its name derives from the wine’s original consumer – the nobles of court, or “corte”. Gavi La Rocca comes from marly-calcareous soils that lend it an unexpected mineral complexity.
