Origin: Piedmont, Italy
Grape: 100% Cortese

100% Cortese, no sulphur added, long maceration in barrels, mature, full yet precise with unmistakable verve and energy. Outstanding skin contact production and really comes into its own, mature fruits, spice, sweet and savoury, an acid balance which lifts the wine and with all great orange wines, that nervy, citrus finish you can get after the fullness on the mid palate is what can lift them above the also-rans. Delicious wine.
