75cl bottle. Organic.
A pretty nose, a mix of citrus blossom and kitchen garden herbs, with vibrant acidity and a decent mineral streak.
The low-yielding Catarratto Lucido grape had almost disappeared from Sicily, but producers such as Cortese prefer the more concentrated, fresh style it lends to wines. This organic version benefits from skin maceration and extended lees stirring. Vibrant fruity aromatics of banana, pineapple and Russet apple lead to a bone-dry palate with mouthwatering acidity and a surprising fleshiness thanks to the skin contact. Delicious salinity on the finish.
