Who doesn't love Gavi? The wines are bright, fresh, and totally delicious. The Carretta has a brilliant nose with bright citrus and gentle floral notes. Gorgeous, zesty acid on the palate with apple notes. Just barely medium body, its weight is light enough to be refreshing. This will absolutely kill with a prosciutto and cheese.

The second vintage of Carretta Gavi that we are carrying. Last years was bright, fresh and lovely. This years just as lively and inviting with a bit more complextity. A small bit of oak introduces a touch of texture to the wine while the bright notes of citrus dance from beginning to end. A little minerality goes a long way in this wine and carries it to a long, fresh finish. Excellent for summing sipping or enjoying it at your bbq!

Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.

- Piedmont is in the Northwestern region of Italy, bordering France and Switzerland. Piedmont is predominantly a plain where the water flows from the Swiss and French Alps to form the headwaters of the Po river. The major wine producing areas are in the southern portion of the region in the hills known as the "Langhe". Here the people speak a dialect that is 1/3 French and 2/3 Italian that portrays their historical roots. Their cuisine is one of the most creative and interesting in Italy. Nebbiolo is the King grape here, producing Barolo and Barbaresco. In addition, the Barbera and Dolcetto are the workhorse grapes that produce the largest quantity of wine. Piedmont is predominantly a red wine producing area. There are a few whites made in Piedmont, and the Moscato grape produces a large volume of sweet, semi-sweet and sparkling wines as well.
