Corbeau

Grave, superb, of the saintly days of yore

We have been betting on this raven-black Cabernet Sauvignon since 1999, refining our organic production method year after year, so as to always guarantee bottles that live up to its name. Local excellence with an international spirit.

A CHALLENGE TURNED INTO HISTORY

It’s not figures, grape varieties, awards or the name on the label that determine how the wine in the bottle tastes. Observe the people around you, pay attention to the thoughts flowing, the environment and its atmosphere: it’s all part of history. Everything resonates when you drink Corbeau. Life is multi-faceted, just like our wine, yet it is the union of all the elements that makes the work complete.

character

Cantina Luretta's excellence. The best grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon transformed into an austere and intense wine, rich in structure and characterized by balsamic scents of incense and sweet spices. A wine to be contemplated alone or paired with main courses of red meat.

From this, one can make a deduction which is quite certainly the ultimate truth of jigsaw puzzles: despite appearances, puzzling is not a solitary game: every move the puzzler makes, the puzzlemaker has made before; every piece the puzzler picks up, and picks up again, and studies and strokes, every combination he tries, and tries a second time, every blunder and every insight, each hope and each discouragement have all been designed, calculated, and decided by the other.

– Georges Perec, Life: A User’s Manual

history

Corbeau was born out of a clear vision of what it means to produce wine at Cantina Luretta. In the late 1990s we decided to plant a vineyard on land purchased specifically for this wine. We knew that the limestone marls of this corner of the Colli Piacentini would lend the wine the personality we were looking for, and so it was.

The first vintage to be released on the market, the 2000 vintage, won a Tre Bicchieri Gambero Rosso award. For a recently born winery it was like winning an Oscar as an emerging director. A great satisfaction that pushed us to further improve our Corbeau, refining the technique and taking care of our land.

Corbeau continues to come out in erratic vintages, only when there is confidence that the grapes can produce a wine of the highest possible quality. The 2015 vintage, the most recent one, went on to win the prestigious Quattro Viti award, the highest honor bestowed by the 2021 Guida Vitae ai Vini d’Italia.
