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.

Notes of mangos and apricots. Light acidic finish. Would pair nicely with a chicken piccata dish
