Scarpa Briccorosa Rouchet Monferrato DOC

INTRODUCTION

Located in the best area of the estate, the vineyard faces southwest and has a soil mostly composed of sand. At an altitude of 400-450m, it sees a great diurnal range with low night temperatures, which help to retain acidity and prevents dangerous frost waves from damaging the vines. The southwesterly exposure ensures full and perfect ripeness on each vintage. Harvested during the first week of September not to spoil the aroma of the grape, the wine ferments and macerates for 12 days in stainless steel tanks. A 12-month ageing in stainless steel tanks and a 6-month period of ageing in bottle follow.

TASTING NOTE

This very unique example of the Rouchet grape comes from this area of Alto Monferrato. The vinification in steel enables all aromas to be unspoilt and explosively rich: pepper, spices, rose and iris are the most recognisable in a series of scents exuded by this wine. With light and pleasant tannins, the wine has a spectacular ageing potential with dark and concentrated notes of liquorice overlaying the floral.
