2010 Lovisolo Gavi

lovisolo-gaviNothing complicated about this wine, which is not at all a bad thing. In this case, it’s simplicity and class in one; this is just the sort of bottle Italy does so well for $10, and the U.S. has a really hard time touching.

From the Cortese grape, this almost certainly sees no oak. It tastes like white flowers, maybe almonds, and a touch of stone fruits. Maybe not the best wine to open in the middle of January, but it goes down easy any time of year.

$10.

About davetalkswine

I like to drink and write about wine. I'm an equal opportunity drinker, but gravitate toward France, the Pacific Northwest and up-and-comers like New York and Virginia.
