Correggia Marun is a Barbera d'Alba vinified in purity with Barbera grapes from Roero area. The mainly sandy soil (66% sand, 30% silt, 4% clay) enrich the already intense bouquet of this wine; harvested manually at the end of September, the Barbera grapes macerate on the skins for 6-8 days before an 18 months aging in barriques (60% of them new) that give to this Piedmont classic roundness and a structure typical of great reds.
A low production of 14,000 bottle per year is an additional quality warranty for this amazing red wine.
