Cortese Nostru Nerello Mascalese Organic

Tax included.

Azienda Agricola Cortese is Stefano Girelli’s new estate in Sicily, in the South East near Ragusa. Cortese has a rich history in winemaking, and under Stefano’s guiding hand, has been brought back to life.

Cortese farms in a traditional way, using organic farming techniques from a time where organic was not a choice, but the only option. The dry, sun drenched Sicilian climate provides perfect conditions for organic farming. No chemical fertilisers or pesticides are used. Biodiversity is encouraged. Traditional winemaking techniques are also adopted, such as fermentation in terracotta.

Rediscovering precious grape varieties from Sicily’s rich past. With a big personality and distinctive fruit this is a memorable red.

This medium-bodied wine is a cherry festival in a glass, with crunchy red fruit, soft silky tannins, a sophisticated spicy character and a remarkable mineral core.

A great wine for the price and a lovely example of this highly regarded Sicilian varietal.
