365 Days of Wine
In the 90210 Day 1. Dinner at La Scala
March 11, 2010
Arrived in Beverly Hills this afternoon. Weekend with Mom and the family. Took Mom to dinner at La Scala, we've been eating there for ever. Limited by the glass list, but the Villa Sparina Gavi di Gavi 2007 looked like it would pair well with my Linguine Frutti di Mare, Seafood in a light tomato broth...
A light clean nose, slightly of fresh hay and green grape. A nice palate, almost frizante and crisp but a good round midpalate. Nice tones of green apple, herbs and great clean acids that really worked with the food. Not cheap at $12 per glass, but we were eating in 90210. I'm certain the bottle can be found for $20ish retail, so that's not so bad.
