Righteous and faithful Montalbera saved a close to extinction varietal Ruche in the late 60’s while everyone abandoned it to avoid being downgraded; only because It is the unique indigenous grape of its home town and folks should be thankful for the benefit they get from it . This make me associate with the Chinese respected virtue of “ Never abandon friends you made when you were low ,nor desert wife who got through tough times with you”. For such kindness and magnanimity, their wine can hardly be bad.
In 2010 , the home town of Ruche, Castagnole Monferrato was upgraded to D.O.C.G.
Beside Ruche, Montalbera has spent 30 years to nurture their Barolo Levoluzione. Vintage 2013 is grand and majestic.
You are cordially invited to witness the debut dinner of Montalbera Barolo Levoluzione tasting dinner guided by the representative from Italy.
2010 Castaglone Monferrato淥淇的家郷 正式升格為DOCG。
除了悉心裁培淥淇之外，蒙特巴拉三十年磨一劍泡製出Barolo Levolutione . 2013 年份更可登大雅之堂。
