Beatuiful length. The class and length of a top white Bordeaux. Gaja says the wine fermented a very long time. No malo. Natural yeast. Best Alteni de Brassica.

The 2013 Alteni di Brassica is bright, energetic and vibrant, with lovely energy and overall tension. Still reticent and not fully expressive, the 2013 needs time to fully open up.

Still reticent and not fully expressive, the 2013 needs time to fully open up. Mint, green pear and white flowers add nuance on the chiseled, precise finish. This is a lovely showing from the Alteni. North-facing vineyards in Barbaresco and Serralunga provide the fruit.

The delightful 2013 Langhe Alteni di Brassica (Sauvignon Blanc) shows fullness and ripeness with bright aromas of exotic fruit, white flower, wild sage and crushed white stone.

The delightful 2013 Langhe Alteni di Brassica (Sauvignon Blanc) shows fullness and ripeness with bright aromas of exotic fruit, white flower, wild sage and crushed white stone. This was a slightly cooler vintage and you get a beautiful sense of varietal pureness, focus and sharpness as a result. Melon and white rose make for a fitting close. The mouthfeel is lean, but not to be underestimated. The wine leaves a long, crisp sensation on the palate. - Monica Larner
