Giuseppe CORTESE, Barbaresco

The Corteses own four prime hectares of Rabaja, one of Barbaresco's top crus, including some vines around 60 years of age, which go into the reserve bottling.

Sales and marketing manager Gabriele Occhetti, who is Giuseppe Cortese's son-in-law, told me he loves the 2008 Barbarescos for their intense aromas and firm acidity. He describes the family's 2011s as "opulent and ageworthy, with a higher quantity of tannins than the 2009s," adding that they will offer a riserva from this vintage after skipping 2010 and 2009. The 2010s, he added, display "high elegance" but are greener than the 2011s.
