Alasia Gavi 2017
A modern elegant Gavi - textural, concentrated and food-friendly.
Aromas of citrus fruit and white flower with a touch of white spice. Citrus notes follow onto the palate with hints of harvest and stone fruits. Crisp, refreshing acidity balances underlying minerality.
Araldica is Piemonte's most forward-thinking co-operative, situated in Castel Boglione, in the heart of Barbera d'Asti territory. Here they work with 230 grower members to source quality grapes from around 690ha of vineyards. Many of their members joined the co-operative in the 1950s and have a long and loyal relationhip with the winery.
The Alasia name is taken from the legend of the Medieval Princess Alasia who eloped with a young Saxon knight and hid out in the Monferrato region. The remains of the Ca' d'Alasia (where they allegedly lived) is situated near Castel Boglione.
