Ruché di Castagnole Monferrato DOCG, Piedmont, Italy
In the heart of Piemont lies this well appointed 6-acre winery, surrounded by vineyards made up of some of the best growing areas in Piedmont. La Mondianese is located in the province of Asti in the hilly area of Montemagno, loosely translated as "big hill" and Castagnole Monferrato.
The rare Ruché grape, thought to have come from Burgundy in the 18th century, makes a medium-bodied ruby colored wine with a hint of cherries in the nose, red berry fruit in the mouth, and a touch of sweet green herbs. Soft tannins with spicy notes on the finish to complete the experience.
Enjoy La Mondianese Ruché over the next 4-5 years with grilled chicken, burgers, pasta, and light summer fare.
