Gaja Alteni di Brassica Langhe 2015, Piedmont, Italy
PRESS: James Suckling - 93 points.
Robert Parker - 91 points. "The delightful 2015 Langhe Alteni di Brassica is a pure expression of Sauvignon Blanc. This is the only white wine in Angelo Gaja's line that does not complete malolactic fermentation. The bouquet is exuberant and bright with green notes of salvia, wild oregano and white pepper. Those sharper tones are followed by bright layers of tropical fruit and zesty citrus. Drying mineral notes give sharp contours to the overall effect."
Country Hierarchy: Italy
Grape/Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Winemaker's Notes: Golden yellow with an elegant perfume with aromatic notes in harmony with the distinct fruit. Dense structure and balanced body, supported by perfectly integrated acidity.
