RED WINE RUCHÉ DI CASTAGNOLE MONFERRATO 'LACCENTO' MONTALBERA 2020 DESCRIPTION

The Ruché Laccento by Montalbera is a red wine of which it is impossible not to fall in love. The delicate color, intriguing scents and softness on the palate are its characteristics and unique. The Ruché Castagnole Monferrato is a native grape of Piedmont, Montalbera, that the company turns into a great wine, fun and enjoyable to drink. We are in Castagnole Monferrato, where in 2010 the Ruché obtained the DOCG as further recognition of the quality of this variety, a grape capable of giving life to a wine with a perfect body, balanced aromas, flavors and scents. It was once the wine festival, now has something of a legendary because it is often associated with the nectar that accompanied the militias of Asti in the Crociate, contributing to the victory of the Longobardi over the Franks in the battles of Refrancore. The crisp flavors depend on the fact that 95% of the production is harvested from grapes from over-ripening, while 5% from grapes ripening earlier than the optimal one. After the harvest of the Ruché Montalbera stop at least 6 months in bottle at a temperature never exceeds 10°C, a temperature that ensures and maintains the high residual sugar in this wine. The Ruché of Montalbera is an important wine, mellow and great longevity, elegance and a sinuous really intense. The flower of all the petals of rose and geranium, and the fruit present in the aroma guarantee a unique charm and very intense emotions in those who drink it. A Ruche and as said Don Cauda "tasted with moderation frees the spirit and opens the mind...”
