Cortese Nostru Catarratto Lucido Terre Siciliane
Rediscovering precious grape varieties from Sicily's rich past. This is an intense and elegant wine.
Cortese, a long-running organic wine growing estate in southern Sicily that has been given a new lease of life under fresh ownership.
The low-yielding Catarratto Lucido grape had almost disappeared from Sicily, but producers such as Cortese prefer the more concentrated, fresh style it lends to wines. This organic version benefits from skin maceration and extended lees stirring.
Vibrant fruity aromatics of banana, pineapple and Russet apple lead to a bone-dry palate with mouthwatering acidity and a surprising fleshiness thanks to the skin contact. Delicious salinity on the finish.
