Resurrected as a near extinct indigenous varietal by Don Giacomo Cauda, a parish parson in the 1960's. This wine is from the original old vines, now owned by Luca Ferraris. The wine is 100% Ruché. It is 80% fermented in stainless tanks and 20% in French oak for 9 months.

Primary fruit on the nose is driven by notable hints of strawberry and rose petal. Quite muscular but refreshing and very much alive. Sweet fruit, smooth tannins and purity make this rare variety worth a try. ~ 93pts, Decanter. Tasted blind by Oz Clarke & Andy Howard, MW. Part of the 75 most exciting wines of 2017 panel tasting.
