This wine comes from Nuovo Quadro, a single vineyard site with chalky mineral soils, at the foot of the Battistina hill. Winemaking takes place at Araldica's La Battistina winery. The Cortese grapes are typically hand-harvested in mid-September, and the freshly picked grapes are gently crushed before undergoing temperature controlled fermentation in small volume stainless steel tanks. The wine remains in contact with the lees for up to 6 months before being fined, filtered and bottled.
An enticing nose of white peach and pear with hints of lime and delicate aromatic notes. The palate is complex with fresh and zesty citrus fruit, ripe stone fruit characters, crisp acidity and mineral notes. The finish is pure, long and elegant with an appealing lightly saline edge.
Serve chilled as an aperitif or with seafood and fish dishes.
