In a Nutshell
From Araldica's prized hilltop Camillona site - this Sauvignon has ripe fruit with delicate herbaceous characters.
A fine, elegant style of Sauvignon with citrus fruit characters lifted by ripe gooseberry and floral notes. Subtle, creamy textures combine with crisp grapefruit flavours on the palate - all balanced by zesty acidity.
Each block is processed separately, being hand harvested in the first ten days of September, chilled, destemmed and crushed. They are pressed to a stainless steel tank for settling for 36 hours. Steel tanks are used for the fermentation to allow for temperature control. The wine is bottled in the following spring.
Araldica is Piemonte’s most progressive 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.
