The northwest of Italy isn’t just about world-beating reds like Barolo and Barbaresco; Piedmont is also home to some stunning whites, including Gavi from the Cortese grape

The comune of Gavi lies in the southern extremes of Piedmont; in fact, it’s almost in Liguria, and used to be part of the Republic of Genoa, so it’s arguable that it has closer ties with Liguria than with the region within which it now resides. Gavi is a pretty town dominated by a Genoese fort and the Romanesque church of San Giacomo, and its restrained white wine has been produced here for more than a millennium. Promoted to DOCG status in 1998, Gavi is made with Cortese grapes and is typically pale green to straw yellow, occasionally with golden highlights, light and fruity with a dry freshness.

About Italia!

We step off the tourist trail and head for the hills above the Amalfi Coast to explore the tiny town of Scala, which has all the charm of the coast but without the crowds. We pop over to Pisa, not for the Tower this time but for an intriguing tale about the origins of the Renaissance. Our cover stars, the Dolomites, are the setting for a heady mix of outdoor concerts and hiking to be found on their verdant slopes. Next stop Sicily, and the traditional Easter celebrations in Enna, and finally the extraordinary stories of trailblazing Milanese women in the arts, fashion, and more.
