Stefano Faina, Gavi DOCG, Italy, 2011, 12% abv. C$31

It was a really warm Saturday in September, so what better way to get ready for dinner than to enjoy a light Italian Gavi with some tart green olives and a little cheese.

This wine has a pale lemon green core moving to a thin water white rim with moderate legs.   Its nose has a youthful medium minus intensity with very delicate aromas of apricots, white peaches and some light bergamot citrus.

On the palate, it’s dry with medium acidity, average and a medium minus body.  Its light flavours include stone fruit and more green lime.

With its average finish, this is a WSET Good.  Drink it now and don’t age.

Perfetto per un pomeriggio di fine estate!
