History Very well-known in Piedmont since the 18th century, it was one of the most cultivated in the area, then reduced to extensions due to the phylloxera that in the nineteenth century risk of definitively compromising almost all European vineyards. Today's major extensions are found in the area of ​​origin of Colli Tortonesi, in the province of Alessandria in the Lombard border area. After a period of oblivion caused by the phylloxera, Cortese was rediscovered and proposed by Mario Soldati in the early 1950s. But it is around Gavi that the vine has regained its identity with very important productions.

Features wine The wines obtained from the Cortese grape are generally harmonious and fine, characterized by a high level of elegance and balance. We can find both fresh and young wines, but also products subject to a prolonged refinement in wood or bottle, which emphasizes its character and compassion. Sparkling versions, both classic and Charmat, are appreciated for freshness, texture and harmony.
