Tasting Note:

So different to the hedonistic, seductive charm of the 2011, but no less beautiful. This is edgy, ethereal and refreshing, crisp and serious, with poised flavours of ripe forest fruit, cherry, dark chocolate and mineral. Since the 2010 vintage the Correggia’s have been making their flagship wine, Roche d’Ampsej, in a more traditional way with a long 45 day maceration and ageing in 6 hl oak tonneaux. A single vineyard Roero of 45-year-old vines planted on a mixture of light, sandy soils typical of Roero together with less common clay, which produce Roeros extraordinary class and composure that can age well. As of the 2005 vintage this is designated DOCG, so can now be called Riserva. Aged for two years in oak barrels and two years in bottle.
