Pale to medium straw color. Crystal clear. Not an expressive nose at all. All I get is some white flower, lemon/lime, sulfur?, saline and a trace of lees. Medium plus acidity, clean finish with some bitterness. Very simple, easy and clean wine. 12.5% abv. 375ml

Yes please. A total alternative to those normal everyday drinking whites like chardonnay, pinot grigio, sauv blanc or reisling. Awesome. 88pts. ANW/425

Lean and clean style of Gavi. More rocks and pith and less generous fruit.

Not a lot of fruit on palate or nose. More stony without big acidity. Still palatable outside on picnic on the High Line tho, especially Italian fare.
