A knockout Gavi, to put it simply, is the one that the trade press will be able to taste on Monday, March 27, which marks the return of the Great White Piedmontese in the Lombard capital. On tasting for journalists will be 3 types of Gavi - Fermo, Riserva and Spumante Metodo Classico - in a sampling of the 2016, 2015 and 2014 vintages.
