More info

The Alteni of Brassica has been one of the first White Sauvignon to be cultivated and produced in Italy: some vineyards used for its production go back up 1983. The name derives from the union of ‘alteni’, that are little walls made with stones that one time delimited the orchards in the area, and ‘brassica’ is a special flower with s brilliant yellow colour that in spring blooms in the vineyards. Another peculiarity are the pheasants of the labels, and they remember the wonderful birds that live in the Langhe’s woods. This elegant White Sauvignon, with an intense straw yellow colour, is sweet and fruited, with vegetal smells of elderflower and grapefruit. It is balanced and it presents a little bit sour structure. This wine is a good partner of shellfish, fish platters, fresh or seasoned cheeses.

Gaja

The cave was built in 1859 in Barbaresco, in the centre of the Langhe, and all along it is recognized as one of the name-symbol in the production of Barbaresco. From the creator Giovanni to Angelo Gaja, this family has earned a great reputation in wine’s sector thanks to its attentive pursuit of quality. In the 60s years Angelo Gaja has decided to innovate the traditions and to import new productive techniques: from the destruction of the production for hectare to a greater control of fermentation temperatures, from the use of the barrique to the replacement of longer tops. The past as experience, the future as purpose: this is the philosophy of this successful winery.
