Cortese

Cortese is a white grape which produces some of Italy’s finest white wines.  Native of Piedmont, the best wines also come from Piedmont, though the grape is also grown in Lombardy and in other regions.  It is known as Bianca Fernanda in the Veneto.  Some suggest the name of this wine came from the soft, subtle, supple or “courteous” character it gives to the wine.
