Ruchè wines can be characterized by their lightness in color and complex aromas – somewhat akin to the lauded Nebbiolo of the region. The similarities continue with Ruchè having fine but forceful tannins and good acidity to stimulate the palate.
Ruchè wines are sometimes blended with small amounts of Barbera and Brachetto (up to 10 percent), which is permissible in the DOCG wines. At the turn of the century, there were just 125 acres (50 hectares) of Ruchè planted, making it one of the most exclusive wines made under any Italian wine title, DOC or DOCG. Its elevation in status has signalled the resurgence in popularity for this vine.
And in 2017 is the vintage year that the vineyard has matured the wine for 36 months, more than the usual 24 months, causing many people to be interested and want to enjoy this vintage wine the most.
