Ruchè Di Castagnole Monferrato Wine

Ruche di Castagnole Monferrato is one of Piedmont's newer DOCG titles, introduced during the extensive administrative revisions of 2010 and 2011. Apparently, the Ruche grape, relatively obscure until 1987, is grown among the Monferrato hills. The catchment area for the title covers seven communes in the Asti province: Grana, Montemagno, Portacomaro, Refrancore, Scurzolengo, Viarigi and the Castagnole Monferrato (hence the name). The altitude of the vineyards varies, but the average lies somewhere between 600ft and 700ft (180m and 215m) above sea level.

All Ruche di Castagnole Monferrato wines must be made from at least 90% Ruche grapes; the remaining 10% is left open to any combination of Barbera and Brachetto.
