Cortese is a traditional Italian grape variety almost exclusively grown in Piedmont and in some parts of Lombardy and Veneto. Widely acclaimed, Cortese is the grape used to produce world-famous Gavi wines. A capricious and labour intensive grape, Cortese is mainly used in single varietal wines but can also be found in blended wines. High in acidity with a distinctive minerality, Cortese wines typically have citrus fruit flavours with herbaceous and flowery notes.
