Bricco Battistina Gavi 2016

Availability:Out of stock
The first Bricco Battistina Gavi was produced at the La Battistina esate 15 years ago. Now winemaker Carlo Manera (son of Claudio and Lella) has breathed new life into this wine. Using a selection of the estate's best grapes and oldest vines Carlo barrel-ferments part of this wine (around 15%) to produce a rich and complex style with great ageing potential - where the oak is not overstated, but complements the elegant fruit character.


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.

Tasting notes

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.

Food match

A good match for roast chicken or pork dishes
