Linnaea Allora Cortese 2017 - Piedmont, Italy


The Story

Linnaea Vineyards is not your typical wine producer. Born of the intense passion of Michelle Edwards and Daniel Fischl - one a winemaker of the highest acclaim, the other an Agricultural Scientist of international accolade - Cortese is an old and rare variety of unknown parentage, grown for centuries on and near the Ligurian coast.

M+Q Notes

An Italian grape revered in the northern parts of the country, but seldom seen elsewhere. The best examples come from the DOCG of Gavi, in the region of Piemonte. Almond skin nuttiness on the nose complemented by a lemon pith and grapefruit astringency which carries onto the palate. This is a textural wine that offers great complexity and a driving minerality on the finish.

Food Suggestion

Prawn and saffron risotto
