One of our peninsula’s most concrete geographical assets belongs to this little-known designation. Ruché embodies every characteristic of a wine with a strong identity, not just for the Piedmont area, the Alto Monferrato, where it has been grown and “protected” for many years in only seven towns, but also for its distinctive flavor. Maestro Veronelli stated, “the Ruché only resembles the Ruché,” emphasizing how unique it is.

Tenuta Montemagno’s “Invictus” Ruché is made from late-harvested, well-ripened grapes (with cutting of the branch and drying on the plant), giving the wine an exceptional individuality and structure.

It has a very deep crimson color and immediately emanates elegance to the nose in the glass, with flowery scents that occasionally wander into traces of forest jam and intense balsamic notes ranging from eucalyptus to Mediterranean sage and rosemary. The grape note is much wider and more encompassing on the tongue, confirming its aromatic beauty.

Tenuta Montemagno, a true Piedmont standard-bearer, is a spectacular illustration of wine-growing forethought coupled with an excellent ability to welcome renowned connoisseurs of superb food into their relais.

The Ruché “Invictus” is certainly a fantastic lead when paired with risotto with porcini mushrooms and poultry, heightened in the truffle season with a Piedmontese cow’s milk toma.

Company Profile

Thanks to vineyards facing south-west, the microclimate enjoyed by this area with its clayey calcareous soil, a process carried out by hand, the brilliant intuitions of the Barea family and the expertise of oenologist Gianfranco Cordero, Tenuta Montemagno produces bottles of great prestige now figuring among the top 100 Italian wines.

As tradition requires, after the grape harvest, vinification and refining are done in the ancient frescoed cellars at Tenuta Montemagno, using the most modern technology. This is where traditional wines of strong character and decidedly new ones, such as TM Brut, obtained from Barbera grapes using the classic method, come to life and are allowed to rest for the necessary time.
