- Montalbera Ruche di Castagnole Monferrato Laccento 2016$23.98Availability:In Stock99 Points Luca Maroni! He writes (translated): Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato LACCENTO: a wine of sublime originality. The sheer quantity of flowers and fruit in the bouquet derives from one of the finest and most intense grapes that, so majestically luxuriant and luscious, can be harvested and processed today. Yet harvested with such respect and absolute lucidity that their lively, chlorophyllic breath is retained immaculately in this wine. Chapeau, is a wine that once encountered can never be forgotten, one enjoyed is yet admirably appreciated. 99 points.Our take? This is a truly unique, compelling wine and the 2016 is, in fact, even superior to that delicious 2013, and certainly the best Ruché we’ve ever tasted/sold.By the way, this bottling also garnered the tough-to-get, ultra-prestigious Tre Bicchieri (Three Glasses) award from Gambero Rosso.
