Tasting Notes

Morgassi Superiore’s Volo is a Gavi del Comune di Gavi DOCG, i.e. from the highest quality level under Italian wine-making regulations. The DOCG area is quite a small area of land around the town of Gavi with limestone dominant soils, the grapes are manually selected and the wine spends more time on its yeast; all this means that the wine is more structured, has more body and displays more minerality than “standard” Gavi DOC. Morgassi Superiore is a small estate with 19 hectares of vineyards on steep hills and all facing south or south west. The Volo vineyard is slightly higher than the Tuffo which I previously stocked (but can still get hold of).

 

This is a really elegant example of a Gavi di Gavi; the winery prefers to keep the wine ageing in tank and in bottle to give it structure, body, elegance and ageing potential. On the nose ripe, juicy apples and pear with hints of almond, greengage and citrus fruits plus “flintiness” from the minerality for which the DOCG Gavi is known. The orchard fruit and mineral character is carried through on the palate leading to a long, dry finish of lime and apple. The indigenous Cortese grape from which Gavi is made is fairly high in acidity but the steely structure of this wine balances the crisp acidity.

Food Pairing

Recommended for eating with fish and seafood generally, chicken, salads, antipasti, lighter risottos, creamy sauces, pesto…  This is a very versatile wine and will stand up to a wide range of foods.

  • Serve at: 10 – 12oC

Producer's Notes

“… almost translucent shades of straw yellow and greenish reflections which emphasise the wine’s clarity and brilliance. Very delicate while intense bouquet with elegant and pervasive flower notes which in time blend and give way to the sweetness of more intense white and citrus fruit aromas, rising to prominence after a few minutes. On the palate it starts off decisively, with sharpness and precision. Long almost bitter finish, typical of the Cortese grape, with its decisive imprint of freshness, witness of the wine’s potential for ageing.”

“Straw yellow. A voluminous, fresh lees and white-fruit nose. Lots of white fruit mingling with ripe lemon on the palate with a citric lemony finish that seems more full-bodied than its stated 12.5%. Lots of class.”
