Doesn’t a glass of slightly chilled Ruché sound great for dinner tonight?
Just because it’s summertime and we’re not reaching for “big” Nebbiolo doesn’t mean we must abandon Piedmont red.
Before I headed to Vinitaly this year, I made trip to the heart of Ruché country where I visited the Montalbera winery and shot these videos with Piedmontese wine professional Paolo Bersighelli for my ever-expanding Italian Grape Name and Appellation Pronunciation Project.
Sadly, so many people mispronounce Ruché because of its outwardly French morphology.
Hopefully today’s video will set the record straight.
Montalbera has a newly christened and sparkling tasting facility btw and is definitely worth the trip. I liked the wines a lot and am glad to see that they have a growing presence in the U.S.
Thanks for speaking Italian grapes!
