Typicity is the word that best defines Giuseppe Cortese's Nebbiolo, and in fact all the wines he makes. Since the 1970s the winery has successfully conveyed one of the best expressions the Rabajà vineyard can offer, endowing the wines with the flavour and elegance inherent in this terroir.
The Giuseppe Cortese Nebbiolo is obtained from the younger vines (between 15 and 20 years old) grown in the Rabajà vineyard, which the winery also uses for producing its renowned Barbaresco. In the making of this fine-structured red, there is clear evidence of very high quality grapes, originating from one of the most esteemed parts of the Langhe region, that undergo an ageing period of 12 months in oak barrels of different sizes, from 17 to 25 hectolitres, using new and those aged up to 9 years old.
On the nose we can appreciate aromas of forest fruits and violets, enhanced by touches of rhubarb, liquorice and other milder spices. The fruit quality is first-rate and complemented by considerate usage of oak, which succeeds in establishing a bouquet that's easy, immediate, refined and delightful. Classic in flavour, it appears warm, tannic and persistent on the palate. We can recognise in this Nebbiolo from Giuseppe Cortese a wine of great intensity and delicacy, an excellent accomplishment that brings out the best from this magnificent terroir and its vineyards.
