Ruchè: must be written with the grave stress and, even if Piedmont is close to France, must be pronounced “rookè” and not “rooshè”.

Castagnole Monferrato, in the Province of Asti, is one of those villages with “name and surname” to distinguish them from other villages (Castagnole Lanze) and claiming to be part of Monferrato: a region which had been for seven centuries a small state, celebrated since the Middle Ages for its production of fine wines.

Ruchè is a red grape variety. The grape ripens in mid-September. The berry is medium-sized. The fruit is very sweet and rich in aromatic precursors, especially terpyneols. It is usually vinified in red to obtain a dry wine, slightly aromatic, with hints of rose, violet and spices, ruby ​​red, full-bodied and slightly tannic.
