Matteo Correggia Roero 2011

Matteo Correggia Roero 750ml 2011   
Sku: 22464

Sweet raspberries, flowers and spices – in other words, the hallmarks of Nebbiolo from Roero – emerge from the 2010 Roero. All the elements are nicely balanced through to the inviting, medium-bodied finish. This delineated, vibrant, harmonious red is a great introduction to the wines of the Roero and just as compelling a value. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. It was great to go back to Correggia, as a few years had passed since my last visit. Ornella Correggia’s children, whom I remembered as young, are of course now grown up. Her son Giovanni looks set to continue the work of his late father. Longtime winemaker Luca Rostango has also pretty much grown up at the winery. In recent years, the estate has introduced large casks for a portion of their Barbera and Nebbiolo, marking a slight change in style that is now quite the norm throughout Piemonte. I also tasted a handful of older wines. While there is little question that the Correggia wines can age for years, whether they improve materially in bottle or not is another question, and a much more complex one to address. One of the myths of French oak is that it would “integrate” over time. The reality is that oak has to be perfectly integrated at the outset for wines to age well and gracefully.
