"Genesi" Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato DOCG Riserva 2019 - Cantine Sant'Agata

Genesis, meaning creation, and this is the name that Cantine Sant'Agata wanted to give to this intriguing Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato. A refined red wine, it comes from a pure processing of Ruchè grapes. Harvested by hand in small crates, these are stacked exposed in the best ventilated areas. Here the grapes wither thanks to the autumn breezes until the end of the harvest. It is then destemmed by hand and softly crushed. Fermentation in contact with the skins lasts 18 to 20 days, with daily punching-down. Malolactic fermentation takes place during the ageing period, which lasts a minimum of 30 months, directly in the barriques where the wine matures. After ageing in wood, Genesi matures in the bottle for at least 6 months before release. Rich ruby red with nuances tending towards garnet, the aromatic persistence on the nose is enthralling. The surprising delicacy of the bouquet reveals oriental spices such as cumin, cardamom and pepper. In the mouth, it is warm, with exceptional balance and softness and a long aromatic persistence. It is naturally exalted on meat, grilled or roasted. Excellent with game and, for lovers of sweet combinations, also with chocolate-based desserts.

Cantine Sant'Agata was born in the golden years of industrialisation, when young couples were abandoning the countryside for a secure income near the big cities. Which, fortunately, the parents of Franco Cavallero, the current owner of the company, did not do. Remaining in the small village of Scurzolengo, in the province of Asti, they continued to cultivate vines and then sell their wine. In the early 1990s, Franco and his brother Claudio became owners of the family farm, adopting the current name of Cantine Sant'Agata. The name refers to a votive pillar placed by a wealthy family in honour of Sant'Agata right in front of the winery. Today, the success of Sant'Agata wines in the world is linked above all to Ruchè, first planted by Franco's father years before anyone in the world demanded it.
