Product description

The Gaja family made history once again when it planted Sauvignon Blanc in the Barbaresco appellation in 1983. Today, the fruit for this mineral-driven expression of Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the original plantings in Barbaresco and newer vineyards in Serralunga d’Alba (in the Barolo appellation), roughly 7½ acres in all.

The name is based on two traditionally common elements in the Piedmontese landscape. Alteni are the classic, short white stone walls that were once typically used to cloister the vineyards of Piedmont. Brassica is the name of the beautiful yellow flowers that pepper the vineyards in the springtime. Combined, the name means the little walls of yellow springtime flowers.

Alteni di Brassica combines the classic herbaceous and aromatic qualities of the grape variety with the elegance and refinement of the GAJA style. This wine’s impressive acidity gives it remarkable aging potential and while it is generally consume in its youth, many prefer to cellar it. In exceptional vintages, patient collectors are rewarded with nuanced expressions of this classic grape variety, with rich aroma and flavor.
