Michele Chiarlo 2011 GAVI, $12.74-$14.99, 88 points, appears pale yellow with copper tones.
The nose reminds me of canned Bartlett pears, but subtle melon and mint arrive as the wine warms.
A crisp light-plus body (dry with good acidity), having flavors that follow the nose and adding citrus notes, is refreshing and tasty.
Finishes fair with some warmth (12%alcohol) and a hint of ginger.
Paired beautifully with baked stuffed Maine Lobster, brazed Sea scallops, and Mac & Cheese!
Just a note on the availability of Gavi wines; you'll not find many available in New Hampshire, but they are usually priced between $10-$20, and always worth tasting.
