With Thanksgiving in mind, we should discuss what works best with the Big Bird. For me, the unique mix of flavors of the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner needs wine that is fresh and vibrant. Aromatic, high toned wines work best, you need plenty of cut to get through all that richness. An absolutely brilliant one just rolled off its temp-controlled container, an electric Italian white wine that is going to be just perfect with the All-American meal.
It’s all in the family at Morgassi Superiore, where sisters, Marina and Cecilia Piacitelli joined their Dad in 1993 at the estate, a farm in Gavi di Gavi, in northwestern Italy. The vineyards are 300 meters in altitude, the highest in area and planted on limestone-laden slopes. The Piacitellis farm without the use of chemicals and do everything by hand, ensuring that their Gavi is wildly aromatic, loaded with fruit and finishes crisp and a mile long.
It’s a great choice for holiday white, versatile, wonderful as an aperitif or delicious with any kind of holiday fare. Better than just about Pinot Grigio we’ve tasted this year, it’s an easy choice for the perfect Thanksgiving white.
