With grapes produced in over 20 hectares of vineyards and managed personally, the Matteo Correggia Concern produces a wide range of wines. The wines are naturally the products of the ground where grapevines put down their roots: sandy ground that has little clay or silt and is very loose and therefore extremely suitable to produce rich and refined bouquets.
The Nebbiolo and Barbera grapes used to produce La Val dei Preti and Barbera Marun come from the vineyards having a southern exposure and placed between Santo Stefano Roero and Canale. Less exposed slopes, on the other hand, give body to the fruit scents of the Brachetto and Arneis grapes. While the large, steep vineyard, looking out onto the uncontaminated Rocche, gives to the Roero D.O.C.G. Riserva Ròche d’Ampsèj, its complex scents.
Alongside these wines – that represent a genuine part of the local tradition – are the challenges of the Concern looking for the new opportunities given by the Sauvignon blanc and the international red grape varieties.
Wine making takes place in modern wine cellars, in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature, while ageing is done in the large rooms created under a hill, in contact with the fossil rich millennial marlstones, that give them the dampness and quietness necessary as the perfect compliment to the whole process in the vineyards and wine cellars. The barrels are carefully selected for the wines they will host, and gradually replaced according to a twenty-years practice. The bottles are decorated with paintings by Coco Cano depicting the gentle slopes planted with vines and bathed by the Roero’s hot sun, in keeping with Matteo Correggia Concern tradition.
