Description

Azienda Agricola Cortese is a 14-hectare estate located in Ragusa, in the southeast corner of the Mediterranean island of Sicily. In 2016 the renowned oenologgist Stefano Girelli bought the near-abandoned estate and nursed it back to health by replanting vines and converting the estate to organic viticulture.
This wine is made with the Catarratto grape variety, which is indigenous to Sicily. It has a distinctive straw colour, with flecks of green. The characterful bouquet is a little spicy and reminiscent of jasmine, aromatic herbs and nutmeg, with delicate touches of white peach. On the palate, there is a strong mineral backbone, perfectly balanced with lively acidity. The finish is long and complex with delicious almond flavours.
