Podere Saulino Gavi Cortese (Gavi) 2011

D.O.C.G., Piedmont, Italy

$14.95

    My Review: My first impressions came as soon as I uncorked the wine, as the aromatic tendencies of this wine came to life! Light and citrusy, with notes of fresh grapes and apricot, the wine had a crisp acidity and undertones of vanilla. Perfect about a half hour out of the fridge, and would be an awesome summertime sipper. Definitely a great match for turkey or ham at Easter, a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Definitely one I will be keeping on hand. Score: 88/100
