Monferrato is a scenic wine region located in Piedmont, in northern Italy. This landscape of  iconic, rolling hills is located just south of the Po river, spanning the provinces of Alessandria and Asti. The Medieval town of Asti is a testament to the region’s history, with historic buildings and noble gardens in a region that dates back to the ancient Celts. 
 
The continental climate, with hot summers and cold winters combined with well-drained, tufo (volcanic) soils contribute to excellent growing conditions and grape balance. Monferrato received DOC status in 1994 with a paradigm that seems loose compared to others. National varietals are allowed to be blended with international ones, with the stipulation that single varietal releases must be at least 85% of the labeled main grape. 
 
Rossos can contain the native Piedmont grapes Barbera, Grignolino, Freisa, Dolcetto, and Brachetto blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir. Cortese Read more »

    Snoothrank:

    Very nice Barbera from Asti with loads of dark fruit, earthy undertones, spices and nice firm tannins. This bottle was even better, more developed with softer edges, the second day. Great wine for the price. Read More

  • Crivelli Ruche Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was alpine-wild with pungent hillside flowers in the shade of yellow, crushed bush honeysuckle berries, chalk dust and notes of black pepper. From the nose, youd expect the austere, yet on the palate it displayed medium weight with sweet raspberry, kept juicy by vibrant acidity. Then inner floral and lots of pepper notes carrying into...
