    About The Varietal

    Cortese

    Cortese is a white grape variety best recognized for its role in producing the vibrant, lime-scented wines of Gavi. This grape is distinguished by its invigorating acidity and its capacity to maintain its freshness even in warm climates. Cortese wines often feature flavors of apple, peach, and honeydew, complemented by hints of lime, almond, and subtle herbal or grassy notes in their aromas.
