Cortese Nostru Nerello Mascalese Terre Siciliane
Rediscovering precious grape varieties from Sicily's rich past. From volcanic origins this is a rich, complex and luxurious red - 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.
Made with purchased organic grapes normally grown in Etna, this wine is a cherry festival in a glass, with crunchy red fruit, soft silky tannins, subtle spice and that unmistakeable nervy, slightly sulphurous note that suggests a lava flow might be heading your way sometime soon.
Light oak gives notes of spice and leather on the nose and palate, alongside black and red cherry fruit. From organic grapes, this is a well made and very drinkable wine, with depth and freshness.
