Wine Review: If you never have experienced Gavi, this year's LaRocca is one to try! It is almost clear colored and opens with an attractive wet stone and mild grapefruit with hints of lime and honeydew melon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, displays pleasant acidity and is mouthwatering and crisp. The flavor profile is a tasty mineral infused grapefruit and lime blend with hints of white pepper and a touch of honeydew. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity linger and slip away nicely. This wine is a perfect match for grilled Swordfish. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: La Rocca is pale yellow in color with subtle greenish reflections. It is fresh and delicate on the nose with hints of citrus. On the palate, it is crisp, light, and dry with balanced acidity and a delicate finish. Suggested Food Pairings: Recommended with antipasti, salads, vegetable based soups, seafood, and lightly grilled white meats.
