VINIFICATION

Selected Cortese grapes from our single vineyard in Le Parodine are hand-picked and transported to the cellar when correct level of ripeness is reached. Traditional winemaking techniques follow a gentle pressing. The free-run juice is fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel vats with selected yeasts. Sulphur dioxide additions are kept low.

TRAINING SYSTEM

Guyot-pruned. Low yield per hectare. Attentive canopy management via green pruning and selective thinning; minimal chemical treatments. Grapes are picked in September or October.

 

ORGANOLEPTIC CHARACTERISTICS

A still wine with a pale, straw-yellow gleam, our 100% Cortese proffers delicate flower and fruity sensations with notes of linden blossom, grapefruit, and a flinty character. It is crisp and zesty, with a balanced and lingering finish.

 

PAIRINGS

Excellent as an aperitif or as a companion to brunch; with first or second courses of fish and vegetables, poultry or pork, anything soused delicate charcuterie (lardo, sweet prosciutto, cooked salami) and fresh or semi-ripe cheese (both soft or stretched-curd). A perfect match for skewered melon & prosciutto.
