Araldica Cortese

Araldica Cortese 2016

Piedmont, ItalyAraldica is Piemonte's most forward-thinking co-op, located in Castel Boglione, in the heart of Barbera d'Asti. This is one of their entry-level whites, entirely cortese sourced from various limestone / clay sites across the Monferrato hills, ranging from 250-400m. After a short stint in stainless, with lees contact, this is bottled under screw cap and ready to drink. Lemon, pinenut, melon, green fig, grapefruit is slicked with a find layer of nutty lees, finishing with a snappy briskness. Simple, sure, but very well made and varietally correct. Chill and crack now, with melon and prosciutto, on a patio.Tasted: 07 September 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 17.00 private wine shops Producer: Araldica Vini PiemontesiDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
