Cortazo

The grapes destined for the production of the Cortazo grow in a selected parcel in the vineyard “Kotznloater” in Cortaccia. A powerful, complex wine with fine tannins, somewhere between ruby-red and violet in colour. The nose has slight nuances of violets and forest berries. Full-bodied on the palate with a velvety finish.
