Roero has traditionally been overshadowed in the Langhe region of Piedmont by its two famous neighbors, Barolo and Barbaresco. It was seen as a reliable source of fruit for lower offerings of Nebbiolo and the home of a quirky yet interesting white variety, Arneis. Matteo Correggia rejected this stigma and almost single handedly elevated Roero wines to Italy?s highest standard, DOCG. His estate, now run by his widow, Ornella, remains the reference standard and most beloved winery in the Roero region and beyond that is one of Italy?s finest producers.?
Correggia's Roero makes the most of the region's top sites to present a wine that is typical of the variety but also more approachable and enjoyable on release. The wine has all of the floral aromatics, ripe red fruit and brisk acidity without the iron clad tannins of its more famous neighbors.
