Great company to deal with and a delicious liqueur. In fact it is my favourite orange flavoured cocktail ingredient!

An amazing Gavi di Gavi, like no Gavi I tasted before, elegant, fresh, with a mineral finish. A wine to be enjoyed

Big, bold, fruity, spicy, a great wine with a fantastic value for money

John - November 30, 2018

I really liked this wine and I'm not a big fan of whites generally. Fruity and round, elegant. Very well made.
