Wine Spectator wine pairing meal. I was particularly excited when I flipped to the back of my latest issue and saw that the dish recommended was a light salad consisting of curly endive lettuce, Parmesan and a delicious peeled tomato and anchovy dressing. Even more exciting, the wine was not only something I had never tried before, but something I had never heard of - Gavi Di Gavi!
Gavi Di Gavi is an Italian White Wine. In fact, it is the standard "bianco" consumed with meals. It hails from the Piedmont area and per Wine Intro, "tends to have a straw color and a neutral, mild aroma. It is typically very acidic, dry and balanced."
My notes on Gavi di Gavi: RUN TO THE STORE AND BUY ALL OF THIS WINE YOU CAN FIND. It is so incredibly smooth, satiny, dry, easy-to-drink and perfect. Gavi Di Gavi has pummeled Sauvignon Blanc and Grunner Veltliner and is now reining champion as my most favorite of favorite wines.
Have you ever tried Gavi Di Gavi? What do you pair it with? What is your favorite wine pairing?!
