Ricossa

Piedmont,
Italy

+ Add a winery image

Ricossa is a wine and grappa producer based in Piedmont, Italy. Lorenzo Ricossa built the Portacomarese distillery on the outskirts of Asti in the late 1800s. He worked closely with local growers to source grapes for his products, and capitalized on one of the region’s earliest railways by opening a lodge near the distillery to house business travelers. This soon became a central meeting place for industry professionals, who were welcomed like family. Today, the Ricossa traditions are upheld with wines produced from grapes sourced throughout Piedmont, still in close working relationships with top quality vineyards. The wines are traditional Piedmontese styles of Barolo, Gavi, Barbera d’Asti, Moscato d’Asti, Cortese and Casorzo.

  • La Spinetta Moscato d'Asti Bricco Quaglia Italy Red 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This Moscato is probably #2 in my cellar (behind the Ricossa). Not too sweet, but great anytime you want a white with a little more sugar. Read More

  • Ricossa Moscato Moscato d'Asti 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This Moscato is just like butter. Smooth and not acidic and not overly sweet. Flavors of peach and maybe tropical fruit. Perfect alone or with dessert. So good we got a case. Read More

Sadly, now that I have fallen in love with it, it appears this vintage is hard to come bye. We paired it with some dark chocolate and smoked cheese. Highly re... Read More
