2017 Gavi (Massone, Stefano)
Stefano Massone, Gavi, Piemonte, Italy 2017100% Cortese FRESH, RIPE, SPRITZY SUBLIME LIME-NESS Stefano Massone gives us a superb example of great Gavi made from the Cortese grape. This is sublime and limey with a medium-full body and crisp, juicy ripeness. The pale straw color is deceptive as the wine tastes bigger than it looks. Maybe it's the pear and apple flavors oozing across the palate? Or perhaps the freshness of the grapes twinkling on your tongue? In either case you will exclaim "Great Gavi!" Serving Suggestion: Best with fresh fish dishes, baked with lemon, olive oil and herbs; or vegetable ratatouille over pounded chicken breast.
