Cortese Nostru Carricante Terre Siciliane

Rediscovering precious grape varieties from Sicily's rich past. With a big personality and distinctive minerality this is a memorable white - 89pts, Decanter

Cortese, a long-running organic wine growing estate in southern Sicily that has been given a new lease of life under fresh ownership.

Carricante, is usually synonymous with the white wines of Mount Etna. Winemaker Stefano Girelli thinks it also works further south on the island, where it’s grown at an altitude of around 400 metres, and he’s right.
