Winemaker's Notes

Matteo Correggia's Barbera d'Alba DOC comes from a vineyard in Canale d'Alba in the Roero. The south facing vineyard sits at a 310 meter elevation, and soil composition is roughly sixty percent sand, thirty percent silt and four percent clay. The vine density in this vineyard is significantly higher than the vineyards that produce the Anthos and Arenis, at five thousand vines per hectare, but the per hectare yield is much lower than allowed by the Barbera d'Alba DOC rules due to extensive green cropping. After harvest there is a six to eight day maceration period with frequent punch downs and delestage; fermentation is finished in barrique. Correggia's Barberra is aged for 18 months in sixty percent new barrique. About 1000 cases are produced each year.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Barbera d’Alba Marun shows fabulous intensity in its radiant dark raspberries, flowers, licorice and French oak. This juicy, silky Barbera boasts tons of polish and sheer sexiness. It should drink nicely for at least a handful of years. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2017. "
