Set aside your Sancerre and put away your Chardonnay. It is time for Gavi!

Piedmont may be known for such hearty reds as Barolo and Barbaresco; however, among this sea of big Piedmontese reds is a small sub-region called Gavi, which produces some of the most refreshing whites made.

One of our favorites is Masera Gavi by Stefano Massone. Stefano is known for pruning and limiting his yields to ensure his wine is not overproduced or diluted. These low yields give this particular Gavi its intensity.

Made from 100% Cortese grapes, this delicious white is both soft and crisp. With a pleasant stony backbone, this wine features notes of green apple, pear and a lovely, enlivening finish of white flower and white pepper.

This is an exceptional value in any season, especially in the heat of the summer. Enjoy with fish, cheese, salads and light pasta dishes with a dash of olive oil. A terrific, "go to" white throughout the entire year, it is especially enjoyable now.

$12.95 per bottle / $155.40 per case
