Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Gavi comes from a small growing area in northwestern Italy located north of Genoa on the steep slopes of the Ligurian Apennines. White label is La Scolca’s everyday wine, an alternative to their “Black Label”. Made from the Cortese di Gavi grape (younger vines), straw yellow with delicate aromas of stone and citrus fruits. On the palate apple, extended lees aging gives rich apple and lemon flavors, some nutty notes, good mouthfeel. Crisp medium finish, vivid acidity ending with a mineral character. Enjoy with a nice Red Snapper!

2013 Vintage. A little sweet for my taste, but perfectly paired with my shank steak tacos!

Dry with a distinct lees character and fruit on the finish. Very balanced wine.
