Correggia   Piedmont, Italy  
 
 
 
  "The Correggia winery continues to set the pace for other wineries in the area, providing topics for discussion and food for thought. This is the way of things ever since the much-mourned Matteo showed just how much potential there was in an apparently marginal area. Today, Ornella and her exceptional staff is a champion of sustainable viticulture. Correggia's natural approach means working the land in the full awareness of the surrounding environment. It's another field in which Correggia is leading the way, sensibly and without ostentation." - Gambero Rosso Italian Wines 2009

“The late Matteo Correggia was and remains the spiritual leader of the region.” – Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate
 
The Roero district is located in the lower-altitude, rounded, sandy hills north of the Tanaro River and northwest of the Langhe. Young Nebbiolo and Barbera from this region have a particularly fresh and lively character. In 2001, Matteo Correggia tragically passed away just as he entered Piedmont's winemaking elite. With the help of Giorgio Eivetti, Matteo's wife Ornella took over the estate, carrying on her husband's passionate desire to expand the reputation of the Roero. The elegantly powerful cult wine Roero "Rocche d'Ampsej" comes from a tiny plot of 50 to 60-yr-old Nebbiolo vines, and is the culmination of Matteo’s life’s work. The estate defines the agricultural management as “natural and sustainable whenever possible.” The latest edition “Vini d’Italia” (Gambero Rosso Editore), sets the estate within the “natural agronomy” category. According to Gambero Rosso Italian Wines in 2009: "The Correggia winery continues to set the pace for other wineries in the area, providing topics for discussion and food for thought. This is the way of things ever since the much-mourned Matteo showed just how much potential there was in an apparently marginal area."
