Monferrato is a land of historical autochthonous and international vines – from Ruché to Barbera d’Asti Superiore, to Grignolino and Syrah – that create some of the most renowned red wines in Italy. In our cellar, where we mature the fruits of the vine with consummate skill, we proudly display the crowns and medals, bunches of grapes and stars that are the fruits of the numerous prizes awarded to our labels.

This recognition of the quality of our red wines, in the region of the great reds, is a source of pride for us and an inspiration to continue pursuing the finest quality in our vineyards and in our cellar.

A wine of great elegance, velvety and lingering, it is a true rarity, found only in this corner of Piedmont. The grape is autochthonous and can be grown only in a limited area around the Tenuta Montemagno.

This magical wine owes its renown to two remarkable personalities in Castagnole Monferrato. The parish priest, Don Giacomo Cauda, who in the late seventies devoted himself with great enthusiasm to the production of Ruché, and the mayor, Lidia Bianco, who worked tirelessly to obtain controlled designation of origin, which came in 1987.
