                            Learn about Cortese — taste profile, popular regions and more …

                            Cortese’s territory was once part of the city-state of Genoa, and still the grape practically owes more allegiance to Liguria than the region that grows it: Piedmont. The grape was first recorded in the early 17th century at the far southeastern corner of Piedmont, in the province of Alessandria. Cortese is most highly regarded here, where it thrives in the limestone-rich soils of Gavi, and thus is often referred to simply as "Gavi." Because of its freshness and chalky minerality, this white wine commonly populates the wine lists of the seafood restaurants along the Ligurian coast.

                            Sommelier Secrets for Cortese

                            Cortese also grows well in the surrounding parts of Piedmont, namely Monferrato a few miles west of Gavi and just over a few hills to the east, in the Colli Tortonesi. Today Cortese has no known related grape varieties.
