MAY WE SUGGEST . . . Vino del Popolo W WITH MYRIAD OFFERINGS AT ATTRACTIVE PRICES, RICOSSA IS THE PEOPLE'S WINE story and photos by Kelly Merritt hen diners and retail customers fi nd a great Italian wine from the lush Piemonte region at an attractive price point, they're hooked. Like the short line at the DMV or a gorgeous date with a Ph.D., an easy wine that doesn't require a committee to study it is a treasure for consumers and beverage buyers. What could be better than a wine that asks only to be opened and enjoyed? And as the economy around the world turns champagne tastes into beer budgets, that's what more and more customers want—delicious, but affordable. One winery headquartered in the small hamlet of Priocca, Italy is capitalizing on these modern demands and making its mark in the reasonable, high quality arena of Italian wines. Made from Cortese grapes harvested from the hills of Monferrato, the Ricossa Gavi is perfect to begin a meal or paired with an artisanal cheese plate, seafood or pasta. A Ricossa vineyard in the lush Piemonte region. 124 / the tasting panel / august 2012 PHOTO COURTESY OF RICOSSA
