Thanks to Fratelli Antonio & Raimondo, there's no need to pay nearly £20 for Gavi. Made from Cortese grapes planted in stony, limestone/clay soils in the greater Monferrato region, this wine delivers all the clarity and distinct flavors as Gavi di Gavi. Like the best producers, winemaker Paolo Sartirano picks by hand, sorts carefully, and uses no chemical fertilizers. It is light-bodied, dry, crisp, minerally and floral. Classic Italian white wine perfect with fish, poultry, antipasto, and light pastas.
The main ingredient on an Italian charcuterie selection should be Prosciutto di Parma which has a slightly saltier profile than Jamon Iberico yet with delicate, nutty profile. Each region of Italy has its own signature recipe and flavour profile of Prosciutto, but the most common are from Parma, Tuscany and San Daniele. Alternatively for a higher meat-to-fat ratio you could try Culatello is a boneless cousin of prosciutto. Either way for the best wine pairing look for a white wine that offers some mineral freshness to balance out savory and salty flavours of the meat. Verdicchio, Vermentino or this wonderful Gavi di Gavi would be excellent like with its floral hints and nutty aftertaste.
