La Mondianese Ruché di Castagnole Monferrato DOCG 2016

An engaging fusion of vivid flavours, spectacular on its own or with a wide variety of dishes.

Estate: Mirko Meneghello and Stefania Negro are the driving force behind La Mondianese. The 15 hectare estate is located in the hills of Montemagno in Piedmont, northwestern Italy. They restored the original farmhouse on the property and built a modern cellar. They passionately cultivate indigenous varieties; Grignolino, Barbera and the ever-elusive Ruché. [Ruché di Castagnole Monferrato is one of the lowest production, single varietal wines in Italy.]

Winemaking: Grapes are hand harvested from hillside vineyards with marine sedimentary layers and calcareous loam soil. Vinified in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes: Red-violet in colour, very aromatic with blueberry, black cherry, strawberry liqueur, wildflower, sage and soft baking spice notes. Cherry, strawberry, raspberry and rhubarb are framed by black tea tannins and fresh acidity. Plush black cherry, black currant, white pepper and a trace of licorice comprise the dry, lengthy finish. An engaging fusion of vivid flavours, spectacular on its own or with a wide variety of dishes.

Pairing Suggestions from the Winery: Cheese and herb stuffed pastas, such as agnolotti, roasts, white meat, spicy dishes such as curry or mustard.
