Great label, no? Decent wine for aperitif

Fresh, light, citrusy, herbacious and slightly flowery. Everything I look for in a good aperitif-style wine including that sloght bitterness that let's you want more.

La Raia Gavi DOCG 2019: Light-bodied. Bright acidity. Clean soft fruit flavors of green apple, lemon & lime. Nice minerality with a crisp & dry finish. All in all, a satisfying & refreshing biodynamic Gavi wine (Cortese grape) at a very reasonable price point. Cheers🍷

Never had it before, will look for it again. Nice minerality and fruit, would pair well with a hearty seafood stew or just enjoy it in the back yard on a sunny day.

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a Gavi and honestly forgot how much I’m taken by them! Nose is a little floral but somewhat closed, palate is mineral galore with prominent green apple overtones, lemon, with a tiny hint of maybe pineapple? Perfect with spicy prawns and sautéed whole trout. Delicious!

Grass, stone, white flower. Nice and light, clean finish. Perfect for hot summer weather.

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.
