The family-run Cortese Giuseppe winery is located in Strada Rabajà, within the municipality of Barbaresco, a noble wine-growing area where the Cortese family produces fine wines intimately linked to the terroir. It was Giuseppe who officially founded the winery in 1971 on the top of the Rabajà hill, picking up the family's small winemaking heritage, convinced of the potential of the Barbaresco area, at that time still not as coveted as it is today. The Rabajà vineyard constitutes the fulcrum of the estate, which is the largest owner of this famous plot, one of the most vocated and renowned in the entire area. Today Giuseppe is flanked by his children Pier Carlo and Tiziana, the former in charge of the oenological side of things while the latter is involved in the commercial and hospitality side, making up a family picture that authentically nourishes the area's tradition.
The 9 hectares of vineyards owned by the Giuseppe Cortese winery consist of vines up to 60-70 years old, located between 200 and 330 metres above sea level on clay-limestone soils. The varieties grown include the autochthonous Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto, symbols of Langhe wine-growing history, flanked by Chardonnay, the only allochthonous variety. After manual harvesting, the grapes destined for Barbaresco, the flagship of the production, are vinified in cement vats, with subsequent ageing taking place in large Slavonian oak casks of varying capacity. For the rest of the range, stainless steel tanks, amphorae and French oak barriques are also used as wine containers.
This is how the Giuseppe Cortese winery's selection of Barbaresco wines is born. In particular, the Barbaresco Riserva 'Rabajà' represents the jewel in the crown of the production, an expression of superb elegance and typicality made only in the best vintages from a selection of grapes from the oldest vines.
