Here are two lesser-known Italian whites to check out – currently offered by Vintages.
Citra’s Percorino is a super ‘nice guy’. Think Pinot Grigio with some flair and charm. A lovely any time sipper.

Gavi, made with the Cortese grape, is one of the purest expressions in white wine. Light, delicately flavoured and with a crunchy, starched shirt feeling. Gavi is all about context, as in delivering a ‘perfect’ start to a summer luncheon or evening. Needs the moment, and really good chilling.
