75cl * Vegan & Organic * 14.5% ABV * Barbaresco, Piedmont, Italy
The Cortese vineyards are located at the heart of the Langhe in Rabajà, a natural amphitheatre that enjoys all-day sun. Combining long-held traditions with modern techniques, the family’s aim is to protect and enhance the international reputation of Barbaresco. The second vintage of a non-cru Barbaresco from the estate, the aim of this Barbaresco was to offer an alternative in terms of positioning and pricing between the ‘grand cru’ Rabaja and the Langhe Nebbiolo. Hitting well above its price point, it has a gorgeous perfume of dried petals, natural liquorice, raspberry coulis, and lavender. Elegance to a T.
"Fragrant purple flower, red berry and wild herb aromas mingle in the glass together with a whiff of camphor. Tightly wound and linear, the youthfully austere palate shows crushed raspberry, Marasca cherry and star anise framed in taut, tightly knit tannins and bright acidity. Drink through 2031."
