Podere Ruggeri Corsini Langhe Bianco, 2011, Langhe Bianco

By In Photographs, Wine Notes
The note on the Humble Grape website underplays the beauty of this Italian white. There is a softness to the palates delicious flavours with a streak of orange zestiness to keep it fresh. The aroma is equally as beguiling – apple and pear intermingle with a floral edge. They say it ‘demands’ food, I say it was wonderful on its own while I shoved lovingly placed a chicken and leak pie into the oven, and equally as delicious with the pie once cooked. At £15 would make a fine gift this Christmas.

A blend of 50% Arneis, 30% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Chardonnay from a “small family Podere producing elegant and concentrated Langhe varietals in the Southern Barolo Cru of Monforte D’Alba”.

The Podere Ruggeri Corsini Winery was founded in 1995 by Loredana Addari and Nicola Argamante who both graduated in Agriculture and specialised in wine-growing and oenology. They decided to change their lives, leaving their city jobs to buy a small farm business in Monforte d’Alba, in the heart of the Langhe, Cuneo. A family run business, owned by the two viticulturalists and Loredana’s brother Lorenzo. The winery was given the name “Corsini” as it represents the ancient hamlet in Monforte d’Alba, made up of very old stone houses.”

Charming medium-bodied white with a floral nose of melon, pear and wildflowers. Citrus on the palate with lifted fruit and a fleshy textured mid-palate and cleansing acidity – demands food.” Humble Grape
