Located, as its name suggests, at the foot of the Alps bordering France and Switzerland, Piedmont is the second largest of Italy’s 20 regions, after Sicily.
Recognized for its industry like Fiat in Turin, Piedmont is also one of the greatest regions in the world in terms of cuisine (don’t forget the white truffles from Alba!) and wine!
With 42 DOC and 17 DOCG, Piedmont has more wine appellations than any other Italian region. Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera but also Moscato or Dolcetto are demanded all over the world.
From its 4 hectares of vineyards located in the middle of “Rabajà”, an historical cru in the Barbaresco area, Giuseppe Cortese vinifies and produces high quality wines since 1971. The Rabaja’ cru enjoys southwesterly exposure and the very best in terms of microclimate, soil and ripening.
Wines are produced according to winemaking tradition using the latest technology: wines aged in Slavonian oak, wines stored in underground cellars at perfectly suitable temperatures in order to maintain the aroma and taste that characterise top quality products.
Their Chardonnay, Dolcetto and Barbera are grown on vineyards on the opposite hillside of Trifolera, producing wines of great elegance and typical style.
