Tasting Notes

Gaja's 2016 Alteni di Brassica is terrific. White pear, slate, crushed rocks, mint and white flowers are beautifully delineated in the glass, with bright saline notes that extend the mid-palate and finish effortlessly. This is one of the finer recent vintages of Alteni I can remember tasting.

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, August 2018

This shows white stones, flint, grass, green apples, herbs and preserved lemons. The palate shows great interplay between minerals and stone-fruit flesh. Medium to full body, very precise acidity and a taut finish. Drink now.
