La Battistina Gavi Metodo Classico Brut
This product is currently sold out.
Delightful and complex single estate Gavi Spumante - produced in the 'traditional' method with second fermentation in bottle.
Carlo specially selects the Cortese grapes from older vines on the lower part of this single estate. Here the vines grow on clay and calcium-rich soils planted on the cooler, west-facing slopes. They are trained Piemontese style on low Guyot trellis, 4,000 - 4,500 vines per hectare, yielding 6,600 lt/ha. The hand harvested grapes are gently pressed and undergo cool fermentation on lees for 6 months before a second fermentation in bottle. Riddling takes place by hand and the wine spends up to 24 months on lees.
La Battistina Gavi Metodo Classico Brut has lifted aromas of citrus with delicate yeasty notes. The palate has a creamy mousse, and an apple and biscuit character balanced by fresh lemon citrus acidity - all leading to a long, mineral and complex finish.
Best as an aperitif, or with chicken, fish and risotto dishes.
