Giuseppe Cortese's Barbaresco originates from grapes produced in the Rabaja vineyard from vines that are about seventy years old.
When the grapes reach a perfect ripeness, the vinification takes place in concrete tanks followed by the aging in Slavonian oak barrels for forty months and refinement in the bottle for three years.
