Brand Matteo Correggia

This refreshing, authentic northern Italian white is made of 100% Arneis planted in silty clay soils at 280-330 meters elevation. Lightly pressed, then temperature controlled through fermentation with protection from oxygen. Aged in steel vats with lees contact for 6 months. This Arneis shows lovely depth with hints of apricots and white peaches coupled with fresh, floral notes all wrapped around a persistent finish.  A tremendous value!

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! And, these wines are made using very little sulfites.

'The Correggia winery continues to set the pace for other wineries in the area, providing topics for discussion and food for thought. This is the way of things ever since the much-mourned Matteo showed just how much potential there was in an apparently marginal area. Today, Ornella and her exceptional staff is a champion of sustainable viticulture. Correggia’s natural approach means working the land in the full awareness of the surrounding environment. It’s another field in which Correggia is leading the way, sensibly and without ostentation.' – Gambero Rosso 

'The late Matteo Correggia was and remains the spiritual leader of the Roero region.'Antonio Galloni
