Production

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
