La Raia

Riserva Gavi

Apricots, full-bodied, great with pumpkin soup. If you love red wine, this is the white wine for you. The Cortese grape in the Gavi vineyards has high acidity, which gives it the full body. It is also well-priced for a Riserva wine. — a month ago

Pineto Brachetto d'Acqui 2017

This petite bottle of sweetness made me content. Candied everything. Even nuts which led a...nutty complexity. Light and bright and also just the right of indulgence. Drinking it made me feel the way people that say they can be satisfied after “just one bite”. Which I don’t believe in typically but this wine did the trick. Yum. — a month ago
