Italian Cortese is a white wine grape primarily grown in the Piedmont region of northern Italy. It’s best known for producing the light, crisp wines of Gavi. Wines made from Cortese are known for their high acidity, light body, and flavours that often include green apple, citrus, and a distinct minerality. Some producers also age their Cortese wines on the lees or in oak to add complexity. If you enjoy white wines that are refreshing, crisp, and great for pairing with a variety of dishes, wines made from Italian Cortese could be a great choice for you.
