MONOLITE 2022: The vision of Hic et Nunc celebrated with an extraordinary white

Reading time: 2.3 minutes
monolite monferrato

A grand white wine in a land traditionally known for its great reds. Possible? The answer, or rather, the confirmation, is “Monolite”.

A wine that celebrates the release of its latest vintage, once again highlighting the vision of Hic et Nunc. A truly great white, the Cortese, grown in the vineyard and transformed into wine with maniacal attention. An expression of love for the Monferrato area and above all for this variety – for too long unfairly relegated to the back seat – that has the ability to amaze, whether it is consumed young or after years of ageing in the bottle. We began with the Cortese in 2016, making wine with this native variety that represents the heart of the Monferrato area and has become one of the most appreciated wines from our winery, earning a role as one of the company’s stars.

Characteristics

Monferrato Casalese Cortese DOC 2022. 100% Cortese.

Ageing: 9 months in steel tanks followed by 4 months in French oak barrels for 10% of the total volume. This is followed by another 6 months of ageing in the bottle before its release.

Visually, it is an intense straw yellow in colour, with golden highlights, while the nose is enchanted and enveloped by the fragrances and the elegance of this wine. From pear peel to pineapple, from camomile blossom to acacia, with notes of vanilla followed by notable minerality. All of these aspects are confirmed on tasting. Full-bodied, confident, infinite. A wine that is excellent now, but also certain to survive the passage of time. I am sure it will thrill you with its tertiary notes.

It is ideal for a range of pairings, from dishes such as mushroom or cheese risottos or a classic plate of bread, butter and anchovies, to white meats and even, why not, glazed roast veal with hazelnuts.

A wine to be discovered, tasted and re-tasted; a wine to be drunk. We are certain that you will appreciate its characteristics with every sip.
