106-12065 Monforte d'Alba
The Podere Ruggeri Corsini Winery was founded in 1995 thanks to a passion for the countryside and great wines. Loredana Addari and Nicola Argamante, both graduated in Agriculture and specialized in wine-growing and enology, decided to change their lives, leaving their city jobs to buy a small farm business (which at the time only produced and sold its’ grapes) in Monforte d’Alba, in the heart of the Langhe, Cuneo. It’s a family run business, owned by the two agronomists 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, whereas Ruggeri stems from Nicola’s maternal side of the family, as his mother who strongly believed in him and Loredana, supported them financially, helping them to make their dream come true. Initially, only classic Langa wines such as Dolcetto d’Alba, Barbera d’Alba and Barolo were produced, to which later a series of other wines were added including the Red and White Lange wines. In 1996 the first 6000 bottles were produced and were mainly sold abroad.
