A spicy wine, which goes well with a cuisine rich in aromas. Excellent combination with game dishes, such as deer, wild boar and hare, or with farmyard animals braised with the same wine. Given its complexity, it is good customary to drink it out of a meal, perhaps accompanied with a shortcrust pastry dessert without creams.
Ruché is a centuries-old vine; its history is not known exactly, but it is certainly one of the most interesting and dynamic native Piedmontese vines. There are several legends about his name, with one in particular that seems the most reliable. It is said that in a farmhouse, called “Rocca”, some friars vinified this sweet wine to donate to the inhabitants of the nearby Poggio castle: hence the origin of the term Ruchè
Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato
This wine was born from the need to make wine separately from the grapes produced from the most recent vineyards which over time have become adult and resourceful vineyards. We have identified the hill corresponding to our needs to have a lean, agile wine with a ready drink and that would characterize the original vine to the maximum. Today it is vinified using mainly grapes from the vineyard south of our cellar.
