Bricco Battistina Gavi
Bricco Battistina Gavi – The best Cortese grapes from some of the older vines are selected at the La Battistina estate. These are typically sourced from the higher vineyards with poor chalky soil – hence ‘Bricco’ – which refers to the crown of the hill in Piemontese dialect. The wine is part-fermented in 2nd year barriques, and the rest in small tanks with extended lees contact.
Aromas of citrus and stone fruit with light oaky notes. The palate has ripe orchard fruits and fresh balancing acidity to give a complex and textural wine with perfectly integrated oak.
