About Sfera Wines

Sfera is at once terroir-driven, but also an interesting take on liters, and bottling wine in general. As Sfera says on their quirky site: Cosmic Verve in a Grounded Italian Liter…From the Alps to the Mediterranean. Sfera collaborates with multiple small certified organic farmers to bottle liters in limited runs and is keen to give the producer credit by clearly putting the winery’s name and providence on the back label. So, Sfera Litro Rosso bottled with Barbera grapes from Monferrato could become Sfera Litro Rosso with Nero d’Avola from Noto from a specific certified organic producer. The front label of Sfera Rosso / Rosato / Macerato / Bianco all stays the same, but the back label with the producer and providence change. What doesn’t change is that the wines are naturally made, and fall into certain guidelines that lab tested before and after bottling. These are not only a great introduction to natural wines, they are also a great introduction to Italian grape varieties and growing areas.

About the Cortese grape

Cortese is a white grape variety most famously associated with the crisp, lime-scented wines of Gavi. The variety is known for its bracing acidity and its ability to retain freshness even when grown in warm environments. Apple, peach, and honeydew flavors are commonly associated with Cortese wine, with lime, almond, and light herbal or grassy aromas.

The variety has been grown in the southeastern part of Piedmont for hundreds of years and is mentioned in documents that date back to the beginning of the 17th Century. It has long been considered as Piedmont’s finest white variety and is often credited with introducing the world to Italian white wine. Nowadays, however, it has been challenged for top billing by Arneis and Moscato d’Asti in the region.
