Cortese Nostru Nerello Mascalese 2019 Sicily, Italy
13.5% alcohol. This is organic, and it’s a beautifully fresh, floral, lighter-styled red with pretty sweet cherry and plum fruit, some green sappy notes, and a savoury, stony, mineral edge. It’s floral and fruit-driven, but has enough tannic bite to keep it interesting and food friendly, and there’s also a nice pepperiness. A lovely wine combining sappiness and drinkability. Lovely purity. 92/100 Jamie Goode

lightly candied red-cherry base with notes of more flamboyant goji berries, red peppers and minerals. Medium body with a tight bead of bright fruit riding some firm tannin. From organically grown grapes. Vegan. Drink now 90/100 James Suckling

Cortese Nostru Carricante 2019 Sicily, Italy
13% alcohol. Organic. Slightly restrained nose with lovely taut citrus fruit and a touch of pear, showing freshness as well as nice clean fruit. It’s a really pure and very fine dry white, with no obscuring oak and a really nice bright orange-peel and herb finish. Lovely balance. 90/100 Jamie Goode

A juicy carricante with a lot more upfront, charming lemon fruit than the dry whites from this grape usually have. Crisp and dry finish. From organically grown grapes. Vegan. Drink now. 90/100 James Suckling
