So here is my find for today, I was in the mood for something light, fresh, and a little different, strolling through the aisles of our LCBO, and I picked up this Italian white that turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. In fact, I’ve since been back a couple of times to pick up another bottle!
And so here it is. The Principessa Gavia, GAVI DOCG by Banfi $19.95
It comes from the DOCG region of Gavi, located in the prominent wine region of Piedmont and is made from the indigenous grape variety Cortese, 100%.
In this particular wine the grapes are sourced from the producers own estate grown grapes.
What did I like about it? It was light and fresh, 12% alcohol, and really inviting. Seductive on the nose, just what I wanted, fruit forward, vibrant, notes of peach, white flowers, hint of pineapple and hint of mineral notes. Very nice… $19.95 in our market
