Gavi 'La Battistina' 2016

Tasting Note

Aromatic, zesty nose with apple and lime notes. Textured and gently nutty with savoury characters - the wine is juicy, with weighty fruit and a zippy, citrusy, mouthwatering feel - creating a refreshing, yet satisfying finish.

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

The vineyards are south facing and the soil, chalky and mineral, which allows full ripening and excellent drainage. The 35 year old vines are trained Piemonte style on low Guyot trellis, planted with 4000 - 4500 vines per hectare and yielding 6600 lt/ha

In The Winery

The whole process of winemaking is undertaken at Araldica's winery Azienda Agricola La Battistina, which has a storage capacity of 3,000 hectolitres in stainless steel tanks. The hand harvested grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press and subjected to a temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel. The wine remains in contact with the lees for 3 months before being fined, filtered and bottled.
