"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
