Tasting Notes

Fresh, primary fruit aromas of green apples, ripe grapefruit and lime cordial on the nose with honeysuckle and lightly honeyed notes on the palate. The finish is fresh and crisp with citrus flavours and mineral touches.

Producer details

Araldica is Piemonte's largest and most progressive co-operative yet retains a small, family run company feel, thanks to the inspired guidance of winemaker/manager Claudio Manera (whose father Livio was the co-op's first winemaker in the fifties) and his wife Lella, also a winemaker and in charge of Quality Control. 80% of production is bottled (an extraordinarily high percentage for a large co-operative) at the company's headquarters in the Monferrato hills, home of the old cellars and a new winery, operating since September 2000.

In the vineyard

Cultivated in the Monferatto hills in the south of the province of Asti, Piemonte on southwest facing vineyards at altitudes between 250 and 400m. The soils here are a rich combination of limestone and clay. Piemonte low Guyot trellis system is used for vines.

In the winery

Vinification and maturation - 100% tank fermented under temperature control with 3 months on the lees

Food Recommendations

Grilled white meat, salads, white fish and shellfish or simply alone as an aperitif.
