A simple wine that delivers without being loud.
There are times when I just yearn for a simple wine. A comfort wine. This wine is, of late, the wine I reach for when I want a bit of repose. It’s my secret world wine*. A wine of quiet goodness.
The Correggia Roero is a wine that speaks very quietly in wine terms. It has finely grained tannins with the barest hints of rose petals and that classic Nebbiolo smoky raspberry but none of that is writ large in boldness. No, it’s this perfect harmony of a well made wine that is comforting without being overwrought and it is just about dang perfect as the leaves change and the days are chilled. As it is with simpler foods – think pizza.
Here is what Antonio Galloni thinks on this wine:
“The 2011 Roero is stellar. Sweet strawberry and raspberry flavors meld into spice and floral notes in a wine that captures the essence of Nebbiolo from Roero. The tannins are firm but also very nicely balanced, making the 2011 a great option for drinking now and over the next few years.” – 89 Points
I think he’s spot on. Welcome to my secret world!
