Gavi di Gavi La Scolca Oro Gold DOCG 2015 75cl
A very good Gavi at an affordable price from La Scolca, Gavi's most acclaimed producer.
This "Gold" is very pale in colour with green highlights. Swirl it around and you'll see legs sticking to the side of the glass hinting at the body in the wine. It is indeed full in the mouth and rounded with pear flavours, and a peachy lift on the finish from the wine's natural acidity.
This is lovely wine well suited to buttered fish or creamy pasta.
