Giordano Lombardo is the rare Biodynamic producer in Gavi, a small region in Piedmont, in North Eastern Italy. They also run a restaurant at the winery at which they use fresh ingredients that have been grown alongside the vines. Always family owned and run.
This wine reminds me of fresh apple cider with a dash of juicy lemon. Really delightful, and playful.
