Bellotti Bianco Cortese, Biodynamic wine, no added sulphur, 100% Cortese, wild, alive and a little funky! Bellotti Cortese tastes like a Jura wine that has gone to Italy and been naturalised. Medium yellow in colour, the nose initially suggests a rich butter pound cake, with nut and citrus oils. Later, with air, the wine has an amazing floral component, almost like lilies, with dry spice, quince, walnuts, and interesting Jura-like notes. The wine has a very good finish with an interesting bitter walnut and churned butter after taste. Complex but equally fresh and moreish. This was supposed to be Gavi but thanks to the ludicrous nature of the appellation system, it has ended up as just Bellotti Bianco and all the better for it! As a totally non-interventionist natural wine, it does change with the vintage and the seasons, (try it on a fruit day, it may be very different from a root day!) but its essence and natural vibrancy should always be there!

Stefano Bellotti began as an eighteen year old in 1977, reclaiming the family farm where there was less than 1 hectare of vineyard in existing use. He began working organically from the beginning, and introduced biodynamic methods in 1984. The wines of Degli Ulivi are pure and natural, made without manipulation. Their belief is that the art of winemaking is to accompany the wine through its natural transformation process. In addition to grape growing, the estate has a diversified production of fruits, vegetables and cereals, and keeps a variety of farm animals. This biodiversity is an essential factor in biodynamic farming, which treats farms as self-contained, selfsufficient entities requiring little or no inputs from the outside. Their wines are bursting with character a little funk, and a lot of heart. A true taste of Piemonte.
