Have you enjoyed a good Gavi recently?

You should!

Push aside your Pinot Grigio; set aside your Sancerre; and stash away your Chardonnay.

This gorgeous Gavi needs to be part of your white wine enjoyment!

Piedmont may be known for such hearty reds as Barolo and Barbaresco; however, it is also home to a small sub-region called Gavi, which produces refreshing and versatile whites wines.

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

One thing is certain - exceptional wine is exceptional regardless of the season. Enjoy all year round with fish, cheese, salads and light pasta dishes with a dash of olive oil.

This is a terrific "go to" white.

Enjoy!

$21.95 per bottle / $263.40 per case
