Cortese, Nostru Organic Catarratto Lucido 2022

Get to know: Cortese, Nostru Organic Catarratto Lucido

Tasting Note

This is a great little Sicilian gem. It has very inviting aromas with a spicy, floral note reminiscent of jasmine, aromatic herbs and nutmeg. There's also ripe juicy white peach. On the palate, there is a strong mineral back bone, perfectly balanced with lively acidity. The finish is long and complex with delicious almond flavours.

Try as an aperitif or pairs well with fish and seafood, white meats, grilled vegetables and soft goat cheese.

Kate Says

"Cortese are a great bunch with good farming and consistent wines. This is singing with limey fruit and a zippy intensity about it. So refreshing and satisfying."

Producer Info

Cortese, produce wine in the most traditional and natural way to reflect the true character of the estate’s terroir and its grape varieties. Taking tradition as their inspiration, they employ ancient wine-making techniques such as fermentation in terracotta. The resulting wines reflect the combination of modern technology and traditional techniques, with every nuance of the terroir showing through.

Made with minimum intervention in order to achieve maximum quality in the finished wine. Grapes are de-stemmed and very softly pressed with a pneumatic press. The must is decanted at a low temperature for about 48 hours before starting the fermentation lasting about 20 days.

After fermentation the wine is racked and kept on fine lees for at least 5 months, with frequent battonages.
