Tasting Note:

A distinctive nose - bloodier and more irony than other Roeros that tend towards fruitiness. Full but superbly defined aromatic fruit on the palate. A complex array of flavours from sweet red berry to earth and blood orange. Solid but fine-boned. A lighter more elegant wine than a Barolo. Aromatic and open but with a sophisticated, serious side to it. A polished classic. A single vineyard Roero of 45-year-old vines planted on a mixture of light, sandy soils typical of Roero together with less common iron-rich clay , which produce Roeros extraordinary class and depth 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 (half 600 litres and half barriques) and two years in bottle. Half of the cuvee undergoes a traditional 60 day maceration and the other half a shorter more modern fermentation. Only the prime plots are used for this cuvée, Correggia making only 6000 bottles out of a potential 12,000.
