(2022) Available mid-May 2022, this is 100% cortese from the Araldica cooperative, aged four months on the lees. Very attractive nose combining something leafy and green, like soft wild herbs, with melon and a hint of Riesling-like waxiness. Plenty of crisp, lemony fruit and acidity on the palate, and that lees ageing adds some texture too for a useful lightweight white with a bit of substance.
(2021) From the Araldica co-op, 100% Cortese fashioned in a brisk style, mountain-stream fresh with firm pear and some leafy dill aromatics, then a strict palate of apple and apple cores, lemon and just softened a touch in the finish with a little fruit sweetness persisting.
(2015) Made from the Cortese grape in Piedmont, this is produced by the Araldica cooperative. The nose is gently salty and lemony, a little like health salts with a touch of spring flowers thrown in. On the palate it has good fruit, lots of crunch like chilled apple or Asian pear, and good balance without the bracing acidity of some.
