Gavi Di Gavi "La Caplana" 2005 wine review by (PB)

Reading Gaiter and Brecher in the Wall Street Journal prompted me to try this wine. It is an Italian white that sits pale straw in the glass with a musty bouquet of fruit and light melon.

The palate is textured yet pleasantly sour with piercing, citrus notes and plenty of acid to cut through the richest sauces. The end is fleeting finishing with a tartness as well.

The mustiness dissipates within a few minutes and it was paired with grilled Tuna which had a fruit salsa on top. The wine pushes forth a vanilla cream bouquet later in the meal.

Another great food wine that scrapes your mouth clean with every sip. I paid $15 for this wine--the first of the region for me. Raise a glass to grilled seafood and sturdy whites.

    Well, it is great you read the WSJ, it is a very informative and enlightening publication. I usually read it a few times a week. Well I just hope that seafood you have with the wine comes from, which offers a great selection. What page in the WSJ was the article about the wine in?

  2. Gaiter and Brecher write about wine each Friday in the "Weekend" section of the paper.
