Piemonte Cortese, Alasia, 75cl
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.
Fresh, primary fruit aromas of ripe grapefruit and lime; zingy, juicy and crisp with citrus flavours and mineral touches, it finishes with gently zesty acidity.
Perfect served as aperitif or with light summery seafood
Crisp & Fresh
Sommelier wine awards 2013, bronze. 'Fresh, dry and fruity, this is an easy-going wine with a pithy core, and a soft elegant mouthfeel.'
