Wine Review: This almost clear colored Gavi is a good value. It opens with a faint green apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy going. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused mild green apple with hints of lemon verbena. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. While this wine is not complex, it is very quaffable and will complement several chicken dishes. At this price point, it is also a quite affordable. If you are look for a versatile everyday white wine. Here you go! Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Delicate aromas of white flowers, lemon and green apples with a crisp, medium-bodied palate showing underlying hints of chalky minerality and almonds on the finish. Bone-dry character and crisp, flinty and fresh acidity, coming from the mineral-rich soils of the area. It may not display great potential alcohol but it is certainly an age-worthy wine. The wine’s medium body and delicate flavors has made it a favorite for the restaurants in nearby Genoa as a wine pairing with the local seafood caught off the Ligurian coast.
