Out of this world. Something like 4ha of Ruche is planted in the Alto Piedmonte (or anywhere), oldest vines date to the early 70s. Heady perfume of violets and wild blackberries reminiscent of Lacrima almost, but with an earthy rich underbrush of pepper rubbed into wet soil. Shit, son.

All the black pepper, rose petals and a touch of brett. It reminded me of a Loire Cab Franc. Which is to say: awesome.

Absolutely divine, peppery with a hint of dark cherry nose. Earth undertones

My kind of wine. Tiny indigenous grape no one has heard of and just so pretty. Violets, subtle perfume and maybe pepper. Good grief I want more

Dry, tannic, and aromatic. Lovely with pasta or hearty shanks.
