Waving the white (and green and red) flag….

So just when you thought that drinking an Italian white wine meant being relegated to either a flute of bubbly Asti or a drier Soave, I bring forth new wonder from the Piemonte region of Italy. Presenting Gavi, a dry white wine made from the Cortese grapes, and sheer delight in your glass!

My first impressions came as soon as I uncorked the wine, as the aromatic tendencies of this wine came to life! Light and citrusy, with notes of fresh grapes and apricot, the wine had a crisp acidity and undertones of vanilla. Perfect about a half hour out of the fridge, and would be an awesome summertime sipper. Definitely a great match for turkey or ham at Easter, a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
Definitely one I will be keeping on hand.
