About Azienda Agricola Cortese
The Cortese Vineyards situated in the Ragusa region of southern Italy have been in the capable hands of Northern Italian winemaker Stefano Girelli since 2016. Originally owned by Giovanna Cortese, the vineyards were sold to Stefano when Giovanna decided the land was too much for her to manage. The winery was modernised but many of the indigenous grape varieties were kept. Stefano wanted the wines of Cortese to truly represent the unique soils and landscape of Sicily.
Think stone fruits like apricot and peaches, orange blossom and citrus. Fresh, mineral and complex.
