Wine Review: Readers who have followed me for a while, know that I really like well-made Gavi. This one from Coppo qualifies. This offering is pale straw-colored and opens with a fragrant grapefruit bouquet with hints of pineapple and peach. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced between its acidity and flavors. The flavor profile is a mineral and tonic water blend along with notes of green apple. I also detected hints of lime, yellow grapefruit and a dash of white pepper. This finish is dry and shows very nice length. This Gavi is a really nice summer option to share with friends on a hot summer day. It will not last long. With food, I would serve it with linguini with mussels, clams and shrimp. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Gavi is pale straw colored. On the nose it is fresh and fruity with evident mineral notes. The taste is savory with the right trace of citrus. Serve as an aperitif or with oysters and seafood.

Organic status: not organic
