2011 Correggia Anthos Dry Brachetto

SKU #1133381

Matteo Correggia was a pioneer in helping the Roero gain international recognition when there wasn't much in the way of quality wine being produced. Today, the reputation of the Roero is rooted in much of the early work of Matteo and a few daring other pioneers. Matteoís tragic death in a tractor accident in 2001 rallied many of the regionís leading winemakers to help his wife Ornella carry on. After a five year transitional period, Ornella took the helm and has been guiding and expanding the direction of the winery ever since. Correggia produces some stunningly good, powerful reds, distinctive and vibrant whites, and this amazing dry Brachetto.

I don't remember ever having a wine make me feel like this. When I was at the CIA in the Hudson Valley we used to serve flutes of Brachetto at our stunning Italian restaurant. It was my little reward for making it through another grueling week, a glass of Brachetto, and the latest edition of Gourmet, or the page turning Kitchen Confidential. I still love Brachetto, and always love to open a bottle with my in-laws because it feels like such a guilty pleasure. The night I tasted this, I had just come down from a severe migraine and was still substantially out of it. I tasted a couple of really good wines, and then routinely swirled, sniffed, and tasted. My eyes became wide, I felt life come back to my near lifeless mind, and I felt like I had a crush on a wine. It is everything you love about Brachetto, the roses, the cherry 7 up like mashup of citrus and sun kissed cherries, bliss! Without the sweetness, this is just delightful. I canít even wrap my head around what I would serve this with beyond the most perfect in season fruit and a good book and a hammock.

I'm a sucker for these types of red wines. Highly floral, spicy, lighter bodied. They're unusual, to say the least, but can be so much fun when you open your mind to them. I had this with some spicy fish tacos one night and finished the bottle with a pasta primavera of sorts the next day for lunch and it rocked with both. In fact, this wine sort of needs food to really make it sing. I'd love to pair it with some high quality salumi, or Piemonte style carne crudo. Fun little wine for only 17 bones. Love it. CM

This was one of my favorite wines from a recent staff tasting. It has a pronouced floral bouqet that is absolutely fantastic. The bodied is light to medium bodied with red fruits. The Correggia Anthos is balanced out with a nice dry finish.

What the what? This is crazy crazy crazy...smells like mint, mojito, and sometimes of the sticky icky. This wine is all over the place. Absolutely wacky and wonderfuly! Baking spices, weird red fruit(wild), totally freaking awesome...

This dry red has the most incredible perfume, with swirling floral, fruit, and mineral aromas that I might associate with a white wine if first nosing this blind. Then the palate kicks in, bursting with cranberry and punchy blackberry flavors, iron-like minerality, and hint of savory herb on the finish. Sipping this juicy, flavorful wine conjures immediate images of grilling sausages outside on a warm day or lounging on a picnic blanket in the woods munching from a basket of cured meats, olives, cheeses, and other savory snacks. Serve with a slight chill and you're good to go!

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.

Sub-Region:

Piedmont

- Piedmont is in the Northwestern region of Italy, bordering France and Switzerland. Piedmont is predominantly a plain where the water flows from the Swiss and French Alps to form the headwaters of the Po river. The major wine producing areas are in the southern portion of the region in the hills known as the "Langhe". Here the people speak a dialect that is 1/3 French and 2/3 Italian that portrays their historical roots. Their cuisine is one of the most creative and interesting in Italy. Nebbiolo is the King grape here, producing Barolo and Barbaresco. In addition, the Barbera and Dolcetto are the workhorse grapes that produce the largest quantity of wine. Piedmont is predominantly a red wine producing area. There are a few whites made in Piedmont, and the Moscato grape produces a large volume of sweet, semi-sweet and sparkling wines as well.
