"Podere Ruggeri Corsini is a a very small Barolo producer from the commune of Monforte d'Alba. Mike and I visited with the husband-and-wife-team of Nicola Argamante and Loredana Addari to taste their wines (he is the vineyard manager, she the wine maker). We were immediately impressed by the seductive elegance in the wines; it seemed as if a feminine touch had softened the powerful structure of the nebbiolo grape, relaxing its muscles, allowing the personality of the soil to gently state its character, coupled with the classic rose petal aromatics that make Barolo so famous. We weren't surprised that the Wine Spectator scored it 91 points. The wine is really very good but the pre-arrival price for the 2000 Podere Ruggeri Corsini Barolo makes this wine an absolute must have. Buy a case! (Greg St.Clair K&L Italian buyer)"
