A nice end-of season white wine from Italy, 2012 Battistina Gavi DOCG is made from 100% estate Cortese grapes in Piedmont. A well-balanced white, loaded with floral elements and stone fruit, namely peaches and a touch of apricot. There’s a little pineapple on the finish, too. Modest acidity on a medium body, it all comes together as a refreshing, almost summery white.
