DESCRIPTION
  • The Ruggeri Corsini estate was founded in 1995 by Loredana Addari and Nicola Argamante who share a passion for great wines and a commitment to quality.

    This Langhe Nebbiolo is all Estate grown and comes off a Barolo vineyard in Monforte at 430m altitude. It is made in a traditional method with 18 months in Slavonian oak. So for all intents and purposes it really is Baby Barolo.

    It exhibits lovely spice and graphite on the nose, so typical of Monforte Barolo wines. The tannins are firm but completely ripe and pleasing.

    Whilst it’s capable of drinking now it will also reward further cellaring.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The vineyard covers a surface of 1.2 hectares, and is about 430 metres above sea level, facing east; the soil is clayey calcareous (Elveziano). The vines are vertically trellised, pruned the ‘Guyot’ way, and the density is of 5000 plants per hectare, planted in 1998 and 2000. The average final production is of about 8000 0.75lt bottles.

    Vinification starts after a manual harvest in crates with immediate stalk removal, followed by four pump overs a day for the first week. Maceration lasts eight days.

    After the racking, decantering and the malolactic fermentation have occurred, the wine is then left to stand in Slavonian oak barrels for 18 months. Bottling takes place during the spring.

    Alcohol - 14.5%

    TASTING NOTES

    Langhe Nebbiolo DOC is a wine that can be drunk young or left to age for eight to ten years. It should be served at a temperature between sixteen and eighteen degrees and is ideally paired with pasta dishes with rich meatcaly or vegetarian sauces, meat, cheese and cold meats.

    Medium cherry-tinged ruby in colour. The body is soft and the scents are fresh and elegant. You can find violets, berries, brambles, mint and a touch of black pepper on the nose and palate.

  • REVIEWS

    'Red berries and cherries, almond, subtle spiciness, and a bit of the old suede leather and roses, for sure. Full bodied, but bright and almost juicy, red fruits in the main, a pleasing freshness, fine but persistent brick dust tannin, and a long finish with a subtle taste of sweet orange peel and almond. Here’s a beautiful wine. It scratches the Barolo itch at a bargain price. Go forth.'
