2016 La Battistina Gavi

POST ROAD’S DESCRIPTION – A reliable table white with rich pear and peach notes. Great with seafood!
TASTING NOTES – Aromatic, zesty nose with apple and lime notes. Textured and gently nutty with savory characters – the wine is juicy, with weighty fruit and a zippy, citrusy, mouthwatering feel – creating a refreshing, yet satisfying finish.
TALES FROM A TASTING
I freaking love this wine. Confession- If I’m in an Italian restaurant and I see a glass of Gavi on the wine list, I generally order it. Why- because it’s usually a dependable break from the usual. The La Battistina Gavi delivered precisely what I enjoy, and for under $20! Thank you Post Road Liquors! Thank you for once again reminding us there are white wine alternatives to just Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
I could be wrong, but I think if you like Sauvignon blanc, you’ll dig sipping on a glass of La Battistina Gavi. It has that same crisp minerality. However, there’s a lovely pear note that carries through each taste, making it a fresh choice!
La Battistina Gavi might only be $17.99, but the fact that it pairs with any light summer dish makes it a priceless work of art! I recently had a delicious scallop dish at Fin Point Boston and ever since I’ve had scallops on the brain!
When Post Road recommended I try this Gavi wine, I scooped up some local fresh scallops and went to work! You have to try our scallop with creamy pancetta and corn recipe!
You should also really consider trying this wine with that recipe or even alone. Remember, pop into any of the four liquor stores, mention The Haute Life, and receive 20% off this wine and any of the other weekly picks! Let’s get crazy and try something new! Oh, and enjoy your Wine Wednesday! 😉
