|Wine maker notes
|The Ruche is a secular vine. We don’t know its origin, but we think it was imported from France at the beginning of last century. There are many tales regarding the origin of its name.
One in particular seems the most reliable: the legend tells that in a farmhouse called “Rocca” (rock), some friars produced this sweet wine to donate to the inhabitants of the local castel (Castel del Poggio). This is the origin of the name “Ruche”. Since it is more delicate than the vines Barbera and Grignolino, the pruning is made in spring. It buds later than other vines and its foliage is of a more vivid green. The vine branches are thicker. It produces a long and thin bunch, with round grapes, full of seeds. The grape is always extremely sweet and ripens too early.
|It’s a spicy wine which perfectly matches with aromatic and spicy dishes. Excellent
with game: deer, wild boar and hare or with barnyard animals cooked in the same wine. Its characteristics
allow fancy coupling such as Asiatic food, in particular Indian and Thai cuisine..
