Castellari Bergaglio Gavium Passito 37.5cl: A Luxurious Sip of Italian Sunshine

Uncork a taste of pure indulgence with the Castellari Bergaglio Gavium Passito 37.5cl, a delectable dessert wine crafted in the heart of Italy's Piedmont region. This exquisite half-bottle format offers the perfect opportunity to savour the essence of Italian sunshine in a single serving.

A Rich Tapestry of Aroma and Flavour

Pour a glass of Gavium Passito and be greeted by a captivating bouquet. Sun-kissed apricot and peach notes dance alongside hints of honey and golden raisins. Delicate floral nuances, reminiscent of jasmine and acacia, add a touch of elegance. As the wine opens up, a whisper of spice emerges, like a sprinkle of ginger or nutmeg, adding further complexity.

On the palate, Gavium Passito delivers a luscious and concentrated experience. The sweetness is beautifully balanced by a refreshing acidity, creating a vibrant and harmonious mouthfeel. Ripe stone fruit flavours take centre stage, with notes of apricot, peach, and candied orange peel. Hints of honey and vanilla add a touch of richness, while the subtle spice from the nose lingers on the finish.

The Art of Winemaking

This exceptional dessert wine is a testament to the meticulous winemaking techniques employed by Castellari Bergaglio. Crafted from hand-selected Cortese grapes, the heart and soul of Gavi wines, Gavium Passito undergoes a process known as "passito." In this traditional method, the grapes are partially dried after harvest, concentrating their sugars and intensifying their flavours. The result is a wine bursting with character and depth.

Serving Suggestions and Food Pairings

Castellari Bergaglio Gavium Passito is best enjoyed chilled, ideally between 8-10°C. This allows the wine's delicate aromas and flavours to shine through. Due to its sweetness and richness, Gavium Passito is best reserved for dessert.

Perfect Pairings:

  • Blue and Creamy Cheeses: The sweetness of Gavium Passito cuts through the richness of blue cheeses like Gorgonzola or Roquefort, creating a delightful harmony.
  • Fruit-Based Desserts: Pair this dessert wine with fruit tarts, crumbles, or puddings. The stone fruit and honey notes in the wine complement the natural sweetness of the fruit, while the acidity cuts through richness.
  • Dark Chocolate: For a decadent treat, explore the pairing of Gavium Passito with dark chocolate. The bitterness of the chocolate beautifully offsets the wine's sweetness, creating a truly luxurious experience.
