Winemaking

After the grape harvest temperature-controlled mash fermentation takes place over 4 weeks in a steel tank at 16 to 18 °C. This is followed by 6 months’ development in slightly used barriques.

Our tasting note

Alteni di Brassica is a single grape variety Sauvignon Blanc with an incredible aromatic framework. This wine has a very elegant nose with harmonious notes of fine fruits. A balanced body with dense structure supported by perfectly integrated acidity with good ripening potential.

Gaja

The vineyard Gaja in Barbaresco was founded in 1859 and is managed in the fourth generation by Angelo Gaja since 1961. Angelo Gaja is probably the most well-known Italian vineyard owner internationally. No other winemaker has received the «TreBicchieri» - the highest honour awarded by the Italian wine guide Gambero Rosso - on so many occasions as he has. He has been repeatedly chosen as «Man of the Year» by the magazines Decanter and Winespectator. The success of his wines must be seen in conjunction with Angelo Gaja's charismatic personality. His life is a «goodwill tour» for the family-owned plants. At home in Barbaresco, he enjoys the invaluable energetic support of his wife Lucia, his daughters Gaia and Rossana as well as the gifted winemaker Guido Rivella. Gaja's wines are rooted in tradition, yet embrace modernity. The wines are true to their origin in the misty rolling landscape of Langhe, yet are free of any provincialism.
