La Battistina 2009 GAVI, $14.39-$21.99, 90 points, was a "Last Chance" wine at the Bedford NHLS.
Light lime color with just hints of citrus on the nose, very clean, refreshing with those hints of citrus, and maybe just a hint of pineapple, but I think the notion of mineral qualities is what captivates here and having an almost medium body carrying good acidity. La Batttistina has more body than other Gavi wines I've tasted, and I think it was more interesting as well. The 12.5% alcohol was unnoticeable.
