I’ve featured Tre Bicchieri winners before such as Feudi Di San Gregorio’s Greco di Tufo and Fattoria Zerbina’s Ceregio, but never before one that also had a perfect five star rating. Today’s Italian white takes the cake. It even has me offering up a Gavi for the first time in a while.
La Toledana was built in the first half of the 16th century by the noble Genoese Imperiale family before being acquired by the Lercari family and later to the Cambiaso family. It’s been a staple in Piedmont for hundreds of years with a consistency in quality that very few can touch. Their 2019 Cortese di Gavi is absolutely electric.
For those of you who are worried that it’s 2019, fret not, this one was made for aging – it is a true Piedmont white wine. The Gambero Rosso gushed about its aging potential as well as the historic and unique plot from which it comes. They also raved about the impeccable freshness, which even with a few years of bottle age is abundantly present. This is a star.
The best part is I did my homework on this one so our price is absolutely the best in the country and by a long shot as well. Maybe the others don’t realize the gold they have?
$30 on release by the winery, for this old-vine masterpiece. $27.94/btl the cheapest you can find anywhere online. But today, for a short while, a run don’t walk deal here at Nicholas Wines!
