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.”
