About the Wine

Ca' de Lion was founded in 1871 by Luigi Ghione. The winery takes the name of the family ancestor, Leone Ghione (1655). Generations of expertise in Piemonte has elevated this artisanal producer to its highest level ever. Farming sustainably and naturally, the wines from this estate show a purity of flavor. The depth and nuance of the wines vibrates and speaks of the place where they come from in the hills of Canelli.

Blend: 100% Cortese (aka Gavi)

Tasting Notes: Lightly "amabile" this wine has a touch of "petillant naturel" (aka pet nat). The natural grape sugars are not fully fermented and the wine is bottled early to capture the nature carbon dioxide. Aromas of jasmine, white peach, stone fruits, and a touch of mint. In the mouth, the wine is bright with lemon-lime acidity and a palate refreshing finish.

Serve chilled. Excellent first course wine. Pairs perfectly with antipasti, salads, seafood, and lighter fare.
