Cortese Nostru Nerello Mascalese Terre Siciliane 2019
Rediscovering precious grape varieties from Sicily's rich past. From volcanic origins this is a rich, complex and luxurious red - 89pts, Decanter.
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.
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.
