Roero Nebbiolo

Lucked into a bottle of Matteo Correggia’s 2007 Roero, a 100% nebbiolo that was a delight with some spinach and mushroom pasta.  Not as powerful as a Barolo from that year (a good one), the tannins had softened quite a bit making it quite quaffable if not overly booming.  A great wine that if you have in your chiller you should probably go ahead and drink, as it’s probably time.  We haven’t visited the Correggia family personally yet, but we will this spring on the Labor of Love book tour with clients.  The Roero district is beautiful and so are its wines and its people.  Worth a visit for any wine savvy Italianophile!
