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.

The La Battistina estate consists of 26ha of mature vineyard, including 5ha in Gavi del Comune di Gavi. The property was acquired by leading Piemonte producer Araldica in 2002, establishing their reputation as a Gavi specialist, with the largest vineyard holdings in the region. La Battistina (and the neighbouring 20ha estate of La Lancellotta, from which grapes are also sourced) are
renowned as among the best sites in Gavi. The unique combination of limestone and clay soil allows full ripening of the local Cortese grape, which – together with vines of average age 35 years – gives complexity and weight to what is 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 Comune di Gavi sub-zone. The ‘La Battistina’ range is produced by the Araldica winemaking team, overseen by Claudio Manera and Lella Burdese’s son Carlo.
