About the event

Just back from Piemonte and for this month we'll be featuring wines from the producers we had the opportunity to visit. We'll be tasting these beautiful wines that we have fallen in love with:

FERRARIS CASTELLETTO DI MONTEMAGNO RUCHÈ OF CASTAGNOLE MONFERRATO DOCG RISERVA 2019

Produced from pure Ruchè grapes, coming from a very particular vineyard characterized by calcareous marl with a high clay component that gives the wine great structure, while maintaining finesse and elegance. The care of the vines and the low yields per hectare ensure the highest quality. In its luminous ruby dress, the olfactory texture is elegant and complex. Deep and intense aromas of rose petals and fruity sensations of cherry jam, accompanied by a pleasant spiciness. On the palate it is long, persistent and with a pleasant freshness. Fresh oak tones emerge perfectly blended in the background. Perfect match with traditional Piedmontese first courses.
