Gavi La Battistina
Gavi La Battistina is a fresh vibrant wine with citrus fruit produced from the Cortese grape. Well rounded with good weight and a clean, crisp finish.

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.
