100%, TEN YEAR-OLD Cortese. Mature and in a perfect moment of drinking pleasure; tertiary notes of mushroom, hay, roasted almonds and earth clearly evoke this wine's age - but it still demonstrates ample freshness with its lively, precise acidity, lifted floral notes and cough syrup.

The 60 year-old vines come from an estate called Filagnotti located near the town of Tassarolo, just north of Gavi in Piemonte. Soils consist of ferrous clay and face the southwest. Destemmed and gently pressed for over 24 hours, fermented in 25 hectolitre acacia casks and 12-months ageing in these plus one further year in cement tanks.

Sadly winemaker Steffano Bellotti passed away at the age of 59 in 2018. He passed his knowledge on to countless young winemakers and headed numerous organizations with the aim of promoting Piemonte wines and natural techniques. 

Biodynamic, harvested by hand with zero to minimal sulphur used in the winery and vegan.
