About

98

"Among the many Apollonian mellow sweetness of the fruit from which this year have been shrouded my senses, this is 'probably the most' aromatic bottle of previous vintages. With aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry and ripe blackberry, and a hint of sweet balsamic and delicacy with marked scents. The olfactory grants ranging from floral intrigued and persistent, with strong notes of rose and violet. This vintage, has dry, soft tannins, which are long and persistent, meaty if I have to say. Very well balanced. Delicate. Surely an expressive wine, complex and rich with an elegant fruit. Steadily, among the best Italian red wines ever, a masterpiece, do viticulture and oenology teacher. A very nice bottle of wine." Translated from Italian.

Product Description:

"Nose: intense, extended, slightly aromatic and fruity with aromas typical of wild berries, jam.

"Palate: warm on the palate, pleasant, rare silkiness.

"Nothing is easier than falling in love with Ruche, with its delicate colour, intriguing aromas and smooth elegant mouth feel with world-class taste. It is truly challenging to successfully describe its distinctive and unique characteristics. However, it can be done.

"This is how the challenge named LACCENTO was born. By attentively and scrupulously analysing the Estate's production and the positioning of the best vines, working with modern masterful oenological techniques, and following the best practices of vineyard management, a shrewd dispersion of the grapes during the early summer, wise selection of slightly overripe grapes directly in the vineyard, MONTALBERA put "LACCENTO#QUALITATIVE" on the E of the Ruche. This gave birth to a wine with remarkable suppleness and elegance. An important wine, persuasive and long-lasting with delicate fragrances softened by the overripening. The Bricco Montalbera is an extraordinary southern exposed hill at an altitude of approximately 280 m above sea level." - Winery
