Tenuta San Pietro - Gorrina Gavi DOCG

Tenuta San Pietro

Golden color with aromas of nuts and rich ripe stone fruits and acacia floral notes. The wine is well balanced with the integrated oak and elegant acidity. This wine is elegantly structured and deeply complex. Serve with fish, mature cheese, and white meats.
