Description

Azienda Agricola Cortese is a boutique 14-hectare estate located in Ragusa, in the southeast corner of the Mediterranean island of Sicily. In 2016 the renowned oenologist Stefano Girelli bought the near-abandoned estate and nursed it back to health by replanting vines and converting the estate to organic viticulture. The tannins are silky-smooth and balanced with a mineral character on the long finish.

Cortese Nostru Nerello Mascalese

The Irish Sun

One of my favourite red Sicilian wines, made with the indigenous Nerello Mascalese grape. Crafted with the organic fruit from close to Mount Etna, it has red berry and spice aromas. The palate has some depth and freshness, along with crunchy red fruit notes, nice minerality and silky tannins. Enjoy with: grilled sardines.
