Staff Pick Notes

Nebbiolo often steals the show when it comes to Piemontese reds, but if you haven’t given Ruché a swirl and sip, this is an ideal opportunity. Redolent of raspberries, red plums, roses, and spice, this variety deserves its due as a notable wine from the region. It may not garner the high prices of Barolo or Barbaresco, but those in the know drink it for the pure joy it provides without the pricey hype. Monferrato is home to this lesser known grape highly prized by the locals. Biodiversity abounds, but Ruché only grows in a few villages, seven at most, adding to its unique allure. If you find yourself in this corner of the world, near the loftiest peaks of the Alps, find a producer who values Ruché enough to give it the attention it deserves. If you can’t get to Italy, then open a bottle of this wine and let its magic come to you.
