Vinous 90 points - Honey, melon, white flowers and spices flesh out in the 2011 Alteni di Brassica. This is an unusually fleshy, opulent Sauvignon from Gaja. All the elements are very nicely balanced right now, which makes the 2011 a true pleasure to taste. I would prefer to drink the 2011 sooner rather than later, while the fleshy, ripe style is at its most expressive.  (Jan 2014)

The vineyards for this Langhe D.O.C. wine were planted to Sauvignon Blanc in 1983. The wine derives its name from the ”alteni,” small stone walls that once surrounded the orchards in the area, and ”brassica,” the yellow flowers that cover the vineyards in the spring. Pheasants are featured on Alteni di Brassica’s label to commemorate the beautiful birds that inhabit the forests adjacent to GAJA’s vineyards.
Producer
The Gaja Winery was founded by Giovanni Gaja in 1859 and has been owned and operated by five generations of the Gaja family. Giovanni Gaja was the great-grandfather of Angelo Gaja, the Winery’s current owner. In 1994, GAJA acquired its first wine estate in Tuscany, Pieve Santa Restituta in Montalcino. This estate produces three Brunello di Montalcino wines- including the single vineyard Sugarille- from vineyard holdings totaling sixty five acres. In 1996 Gaja acquired a second property in Tuscany, Ca’Marcanda, located in Castagneto Carducci in Bolgheri. Of the property’s 200 acres, 150 have been planted with new vineyards: primarily Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, as well as Cabernet Franc and Syrah. BottleCurrently, the Gaja Winery owns 250 acres of vineyards in Piedmont, located in the Barbaresco district (Barbaresco and Treiso) and the Barolo district (Serralunga d’Alba and La Morra). Since its inception, the Gaja Winery has continuously evolved in ways that have always focused on meticulous care of and attention to the quality of its wines.
