Ricardo Ricco of Italy took the sixth stage of the Tour in an exciting last kilometre climb which saw the yellow jersey splatted into the road with a silly wheel clip mistake.
We celebrated for him with a Gavi La Lancellotta 2007. It’s very pale with a zippy scent of grapefruits and peaches. Bone dry it had a zingy acidity, medium body and alcohol level. The flavour was intensely fruity with lots of fresh grapefruit backed by a little sweeter apricot. The flavour lasted well, and it was delightfully more-ish.
Not your standard forgettable bianco, this wine was a ‘buy again’ at £7.50, but it’s currently on sale at Majestic Wine for £6 in an Italian multi-buy offer. If you’re a fan of Sauvignon Blanc, but want to try something different that will still make your steely taste buds smile give this a go.
