This cuvée is a modern interpretation of Madiran designed for immediate pleasure and a far cry from the old fashioned examples which seemed to take years before they became approachable.
This wine is a dark garnet colour, with the nose revealing notes of blackcurrant, blackberry and raspberry accompanied by fine spicy notes. On the palate, this wine is generous and aromatic. With velvety tannins, this is a cuvée that combines typicality and modernity.
65% Tannat, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Pinenc

2021/22 Nostru Nerello Mascalese, Cortese, IGT Terre Siciliane
The Nostru range from Azienda Agricola Cortese offer terrific value, expressive wines made with grapes more commonly associated with the slopes of Mount Etna. The farming here is traditional and a nod to when organic production was a way of life rather than an informed decision.
