La Scolca Gavi Bianco Secco Cortese

La Scolca Gavi Bianco Secco Cortese for Mediterranean Sole Seafood Dinner

Stopping over in Frankfurt on our European tour, we walked down to the Frankfurt City Center to the famous Fressgass'in near the Opernplatz (Opera Place) for dinner at Garibaldi Restaurant where they serve authentic Italian and fresh Mediterranean cuisine. Garibaldi have an extensive wine list of Italian wines from simple every day wines to ultra premium legendary classic labels such as Tignanello, Guado Al Tasso, Ornellaia, Bondi Santo, Sassicaia and Masseto,

I had one of my favorite seafood dishes that I will order whenever it is available, grilled Sogliola Seezunge (Sole) with potatoes and seasonal vegetables. It was perfectly prepared and delicious.

To accompany my dinner I selected a simple light Italian white wine, La Scolca Gavi Bianco Secco.

Gavi La Scolca Bianco Secco Cortese 2017

From young, this is produced from 100% Cortese grapes grown in the "high hills" of Rovereto. This is a simple every day wine from the iconic Gavi producer. A nice refreshing simple wine to complement and not overshadow the delicate fish entry.

Light pale clear, almost colorless, light body, aromas of floral, yellow apple, slight citrus note, clean and crisp, moderately dry, medium acidity and medium alcohol at 12%.

RM 88 points.
