Araldica

Our favourite entry-level Italian white from the Monferrato hills made from Cortese, the Gavi grape. A quintessential northern Italian dry white produced in an easy-drinking, fresh style.

Production

Cultivated in the Monferatto hills in the south of the province of Asti, Piemonte on southwest facing vineyards at altitudes between 250 and 400m. The soils here are a rich combination of limestone and clay. Piemonte low Guyot trellis system is used for vines. 100% tank fermented under temperature control with 3 months on the lees.

Tasting notes

A great value, zesty dry white. Fresh, primary fruit aromas of green apples, grapefruit and ripe citrus fruit on the nose with lightly honeyed, lemony notes on the palate. The finish is fresh and crisp with citrus flavours, a hint of almond and mineral touches.

Food match

Grilled white meat, salads, white fish and shellfish or simply alone as an apperitif.
