Additional Information

The Roero district is located in the lower-altitude, rounded, sandy hills north of the Tanaro River and northwest of the Langhe. Young Nebbiolo and Barbera from this region have a particularly fresh and lively character. In 2001, Matteo Correggia tragically passed away just as he entered Piedmont’s winemaking elite. With the help of Giorgio Rivetti (of the famous La Spinetta estate), Matteo’s wife Ornella took over the estate, carrying on her husband’s passionate desire to expand the reputation of the Roero. The elegantly powerful cult wine Roero “Rocche d’Ampsej” comes from a tiny plot of 50 to 60-yr-old Nebbiolo vines, and is the culmination of Matteo?s life?s work. Barbera “Bricco Marun” is varietally pure, vibrant, and concentrated, with intense personality. Nebbiolo “Val dei Preti” is also classic Roero: from 30 year old nebbiolo vines planted in three hectares of sandy-limestone soil, the wine ages 12 months in new French oak. “Anthos” is the estate’s dry, still Brachetto, a great value with a nose of rose petals and licorice, while the Arneis, an incredible summertime thirst-quencher, has an ever-growing following. Correggia’s Nebbiolo “Roero,” aged for 12 months in used barriques, and an additional 8 months in stainless steel, provides access to their stunning line-up at an incredible value!

Tasting Notes

Roero's sandy marine soils allow for the preservation of acidity and successful farming of white varieties, especially the indigenous Arneis. Arneis in Piemontese dialect translates to 'little rascal' as it is a difficult grape to ripen. It loses acidity rapidly as it ripens making it difficult to preserve the fresh acidity which makes the wine so crisp and enjoyable. Correggia takes a unique approach with his Arneis to get the best from the fruit. He makes an early pass when the wine is just ripe to preserve the acidity and then goes back into the vineyards a week or two later as the fruit ripens to show a richer fruit profile. He then blends the lots together to make a wine with ripe melon and stone fruit along with tart green apple and citrus. All of these flavors dance over a firm mineral core.
