Press & Shelf Talkers

  • Score: 88 Vintage 2016 Wine Spectator“White peach and apple flavors are enhanced by a straw note in this crisp white. Nicely balanced, lingering with orchard fruit and a saline element on the finish. Drink now. 20,833 cases made.” Shelf Talker Full Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2016 Wine Advocate“The Cortese grape from the Gavi appellation always offers crisp delineation and sharp mineral tones. That’s exactly what you get with the 2016 Gavi La Luciana. Flint and crushed granite are followed by citrus and white peach. There is a touch of dried basil leaf on the finish. This is an immediate and easy-drinking white wine.” Shelf Talker Full Review
