Medium Body, Dry (Ruche).
This special wine boasts a great history* thanks to the priest who championed the unique, rare, Piedmomt variety, Ruche.
A single vineyard expression of an aromatic red grape. Think Nebbiolo meets Pinot Nero/Noir (and a hint of Sangiovese plus old-world style Syrah).
* This 2016 was the first release from Luca Ferraris, as it was the first time he could make a vintage from the special vineyard originally owned by the priest who 'discovered' and studied the Ruche vine, hence the wine's name Vigna Del Parroco. The bottle design was also originated by the priest and is only allowed for the bottling of this particular wine.
The family-run Ferraris estate is located in Asti, within the Castagnole Monferrato appellation. Winemaker Luca Ferraris ages his boutique wines in a deep cellar that was first built in the 1400s and then expanded and finished by Luca's grandfather. He believes in five elements that characterise his award-winning wines ‚Äì sun, earth, warmth, scent and aroma. The heritage of the Ferraris estate lives on through the respect Luca shows for both his grandfather's teachings and the land itself.
