Description

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 three distinct areas producing very different wines. The majority of grapes go to produce the unoaked 'La Battistina' while the premium 'Bricco Battistina' is produced from vines grown on the 'Bricco' or crown of the hill and 'Nuovo Quadro' comes from a small, plot at the foot of the Battistina hill which lies within the Gavi sub-zone.





Aromatic, zesty nose with apple, lime and kiwi notes and a hint of minerality. Juicy, weighty fruit with a zippy, citric acid mouthwatering feel creating a refreshing, satisfying finish.
