2018 Oltretorrente Colli Tortonesi Cortese

Paderna, Italy

Organic methods in this part of Italy significantly reduce the yields, but this is of benefit to the complexity and structure of wines. An earthy, rich, and simple Cortese. The depth of flavour in the grapes are super prominent. Lots of crisp acidity so pair this one with a fatty or oily dish.

About the maker

Oltretorrente vineyards are located in Paderna in the evocative hilly area of Tortona. The uniqueness of the wines of Oltretorrente is due to the characteristics of the plants

All the old vines of Oltretorrente are different from each other and were selected 60 years ago in the same environment in which they are grown today. They maintain the link between plant and territory, so the resulting wine is something unable to be reproduced elsewhere. Organic methods significantly reduce the yields, but this is of benefit to the complexity and structure of wines: in fact the old vines produce less but the plants are more balanced and grapes are richer and deeper in their characteristics.
