Tasting Notes: Classic and elegant Gavi from La Battistina estate. A gently aromatic, dry white with green apple, lime and herbaceous characters, typical of the local Cortese grape. Lightly herbal and savoury notes combine with the fruit flavours to give a textured palate.

Producer Details: Araldica's La Battistina estate consists of 25 hectares of south facing vineyards, including 5 hectares of 'Gavi del Comune di Gavi', on a unique combination of limestone and clay. This isolated bubble of chalky, mineral soil allows full ripening of the local Cortese grape. Vines average 35 years old, giving complexity and weight to what is becoming one of Italy's most fashionable white wines. The estate is divided into distinct areas producing very different wines. The majority of grapes go to produce the unoaked 'La Battistina', while 'Nuovo Quadro' comes from a small, plot at the foot of the Battistina hill which lies within the Gavi sub-zone.

In The Vineyard: Grapes are sourced from the 25ha estate of La Battsitina in the Gavi area of Piemonte. The steep hillside vineyards here are ideally suited to the production of ripe, healthy grapes with good balance between concentrated fruit flavours and fresh acidity. Vines used for this wine are typically 10-15 years old.

In The Winery: Grapes are picked and gently pressed, the resulting juice allowed to settle over night. The clear juice is moved to another tank for fermentation, which lasts approximately 10 days. The wine is then bottle in the next few months to retain freshness.
