Extraordinarily aromatic, rivaling the intensity of Brachetto on the nose, but dry. And therefore an absolute delight to sniff and swish in the glass. On the palate it tends to be light and fruity, with moderately intense tannins and fairly brambly acidity.In addition to being a wine, Ruchè is a grape, grown exclusively in the Alto Monferrato (province of Asti). Though its origin is not completely certain, it is said to have developed from a Burgundian grape introduced centuries ago by monks at the now abandoned Monastery of San Rocco.
