Why buy it?

Harmony with the territory – it is certainly the right phrase to describe Giuseppe Cortese’s precious Barbaresco. Only the best grapes become part of this wine of which this company has always been one of the finest representatives; notes of ripe fruit intertwine with the tertiary aromas that only long aging in wood and time can give to this wine.

Description

History

It was in 1971 that Giuseppe Cortese decided to start producing Barbaresco in his own vineyards, strongly believing in the potential of this area; thus the first Barbaresco Rabajà was born. Today the company sees Giuseppe’s sons busy cultivating around 8 hectares of vineyards in the heart of Rabajà with method and passion. Austerity intertwined with elegance is how we could describe the wines of this company which combine the first characteristic of the Nebbiolo grape with the nuances dictated by the climate and the peculiar soils.

Grapes used

Nebbiolo 100%

Production method

The Nebbiolo grapes used come from vineyards that have an average age of 35 years. After the harvest, the grapes ferment in contact with the skins for approximately 30 days. Subsequently the wine ages for 18 months in Slavonian oak barrels and another 6 months before being marketed.

Alcohol content

14.5%

Tasting notes

Intense ruby ​​red colour. Notes of fresh fruit combined with notes of raspberry, blackberry and currant jam with dried violets.

Possible combinations

Ideal with truffle first courses, medium or very mature cheeses, or with meat or traditional Piedmontese second courses. Also excellent as a meditation wine.
