Cortese is a white grape variety, famous for its role in the crisp, lime-scented wines of Gavi. The variety is known for its bracingly high acidity and its ability to retain freshness. Apple, peach, and honeydew flavors are commonly associated with Cortese wine, along with lime, almond, and light herbal or grassy aromas.

Cortese has been grown in the southeastern part of Piedmont and it has long been considered as Piedmont’s finest variety.
