75cl * 14% ABV * Barbaresco, 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. Hitting well above its price point, it has a gorgeous perfume of dried petals, raspberry coulis, and lavender. Elegance to a T. 93 points, James Suckling. Drink to 2032+.
