Light and crisp, this Arneis pairs well with fish dishes, delicate appetizers, au gratin vegetables and fresh cheese.

James Suckling
This white is very intense and rich with mango and lemon character and some cream. Full-bodied and it has lots of richness and freshness. Lasts a long time on the palate. Screw cap.

Matteo Correggia
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 Rivetti (of the famous La Spinetta estate), 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. Barbera "Bricco Marun" is varietally pure, vibrant, and concentrated, with intense personality. Nebbiolo "Val dei Preti" is also classic Roero: from 30 year old nebbiolo vines planted in three hectares of sandy-limestone soil, the wine ages 12 months in new French oak. "Anthos" is the estate's dry, still Brachetto, a great value with a nose of rose petals and licorice, while the Arneis, an incredible summertime thirst-quencher, has an ever-growing following. Correggia's Nebbiolo "Roero," aged for 12 months in used barriques, and an additional 8 months in stainless steel, provides access to their stunning line-up at an incredible value!

The estate defines the agricultural management as "natural and sustainable whenever possible". Only manure is used as fertilizer. Spontaneous cover crops (grass cover) are left between the rows of vines, the grass is mowed and the soil is tilled so to work the plant substance (green manure) into the ground. No chemical weed-control products are used. There is a very limited use of SO2 in the wine.

Champagne

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
