*3R* 2021 Marco Crivelli Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato (Piedmont, IT)

Weight: 3R

Varietal: Ruchè

Region: Piedmont, Italy

Widely viewed as “Il Principe del Monferrato”, Ruchè is only cultivated in seven villages and Crivelli’s expression of this finicky varietal is considered to be one of the region’s best. Its bouquet is unique; it’s intense, fine, enveloping and pleasantly aromatic, offering a clear idea of the red fruit, floral, and even herbal notes that follow through on the palate. Marco Crivelli recommends that his Ruchè be paired with meat, game, and aged cheeses.
