Nebbiolo ‘Roero’, Correggia
Matteo Correggia’s one hundred percent Nebbiolo Roero DOC comes from a vineyard in Canale d’Alba. The south/south-west facing vineyard sits at a 300 meter elevation, and soil composition is roughly sixty percent sand, thirty percent silt and four percent clay. After harvest in mid-October, there is a five to seven day maceration period with frequent punch downs and delestage. The Roero is aged for 12 months in neutral barrique and then eight months in steel vats. About 2000 cases are produced each year.
