โ€œGiuseppe Corteseโ€™s 2018 Barbaresco Rabajร  is fresh and vibrant with a tonic, almost electric personality. The wine shows the kind of freshness you get from mineral-rich soils that translate to both the bouquet and the palate. There are points of sour cherry and bramble with rusty nail and some tart orange zest. This release of 17,000 bottles is probably the most successful wine from this estate that I have reviewed over the years.โ€

โ€œThe 2018 Barbaresco shows a slightly sweet side with dried plum or cherry confit. But there is a tart fruit and savory side as well that veers toward grilled rosemary, spice and iron ore. These unfold quickly as the wine takes on more air in the glass. These results are accessible and very pretty. The wine awards you a straight-shooting expression of Barbaresco that is balanced and proper.โ€

โ€œThe Giuseppe Cortese 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo pours from the bottle with a lean color and appearance. It shows shiny highlights of both garnet and darker shade of purplish ruby. This wine happily and fullheartedly embraces all of the most naked characteristics of the Nebbiolo grape, with forest fruit, tilled earth and freshly milled white pepper. This is a terrific wine for an informal trattoria meal with a huge spread of appetizers and slices of pizza shared by friends from the same pie.
