Top 10 wines in the UK press

Aldi The Exquisite Collection Gavi 2013

Aldi The Exquisite Collection Gavi 2013David Williams, writing in The Observer, recommended a selection of “unusual Italian wines” this week, including this “creditable cheapie” from supermarket Aldi.

He said: “I once enjoyed a similar dish to Claudia’s octopus salad in a restaurant in Genoa: the consolation for a missed train and a difficult day. The wine, inevitably for this part of the world, was from Gavi, 30 miles inland – a typically lemon-skin scented and lemon-juice tangy dry white made from the Cortese grape.

“Gavi can be fabulously flowing, textured and mineral (like La Guistiana Gavi di Gavi Montessora 2012; £22.30, hedonism.co.uk). Aldi’s creditable cheapie is rather less complex, but it’s richer than you’d expect and does a good job of providing a dry and citric condiment for octopus and other seafood.”

Price: £5.29, Aldi

    Good morning, I am an italian wine journalist. I am sorry but Teroldego is not a wine from the Piedmont region of Italy but Trentino region. This wine, in particular, is made by Cavit for Tesco. I would like you explain the reason of this mistake to your readers and I am sure this will contribute to increase popularity of italian wine. I always follow the drink business and a really enjoy reading articles especially about wine that has a primal place on my blog. I hope you understand the reason of my disapproval. My best regards.
