Filagnotti Cortese Bellotti, 100% Cortese, no sulphur added, long maceration in barrels.  Full yet precise with unmistakable verve and energy. Outstanding skin contact wine making.  Filagnotti Cortese Bellotti has mature fruits, spice, sweet and savoury and an acid balance which lifts the wine.  As with all great orange wines, it has that nervy, citrus finish which you get after the fullness on the mid palate.  This is what lifts good orange above the also-rans.  This is delicious wine.

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 wine making 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, self sufficient 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.
