One of the most popular Italian white wines is Gavi di Gavi. A perfect alternative to Pinot Grigio, this floral white is crisp and dry with youthful vitality and freshness. Few wines rival Gavi for its exceptional affinity with seafood, thanks in large part to it's fantastic acidity. 100% Cortese, the La Bollina style of Gavi with it's inviting aromas of peach and honeydew, is what made Gavi the varietal that introduced the world to amazing Italian whites from Piedmont. Historically, Gavi was reserved for the jet set Europeans, and is now becoming popular in the US. 97 Points in back-to-back vintages, Luca Maroni calls La Bollina the best white in Italy!
"This intensely yellow wine shows aromas of jasmine and almond blossoms, accompanied by slight hints of pear, yellow peach, and vanilla. The acidity is good and provides freshness, contrasting and balancing the natural softness of the slight over-ripening of the grapes. It will be great with shellfish, raw fish and white meats." Luca Maroni, 97 Points
