Cantina Parroco

Vigna Del Parroco

Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato 2017

Love the story: vineyard of the parish priest in Piedmont. Forced to sell by the Catholic Church.
Beautiful note, reminds me a little of Nebbiolo: perfume, recipe red fruit, just wants you to put your nose in the glass. Little heavier on the palate with noticeable acidity and some tannins.

Cantina del Parroco di Neive

Neive-Piemonte Barbaresco 1987

Still some bright acidity to be had, but someone applied a Gaussian filter and rounded the edges nicely here. — 6 years ago

Langhe Nebbiolo 2018

Delectable Wine

The 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo is fresh, vibrant and absolutely delicious. Sweet floral and red berry notes are front and center in this gorgeous, translucent Langhe Nebbiolo from Sottimano. In 2018, the fruit came from the Vigna del Parroco section of Basarin. Rose petal, lavender, mint and spice all linger on the finish. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2020)

Borgogno Francesco

Vigna dei Parroco Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato Ruche 2016

Wow. Fun, fun fun. Both the bottle and the wine. Really screwed with the drawer settings on my wine fridge though. Cherry and currants but enough tannins to stand up to Ragu or a piece of meat. — 3 years ago
