Luigia Zucchi's Rugrà

Luigia Zucchi's Rugrà Piemontese estate springs from a long held local family tradition for small wine production. They are located in the Monferrato hills in the Commune of Tassarolo just outside the town of Novi Ligure. The 4 ha estate (2 of vines) has always been farmed with the health of the soil and the environment in mind and carries organic certification.

Food Matches

Enjoy with a hearty beef stew.

Vinification

The wine making process involves a soft pressing of the grapes and a cold decanteration for 24 hours. For 90% of the must, fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature between 18 and 20°C for 50 days and then it is left to rest on its own yeasts, for another 80 days. The remaining 10% of the must is fermented in wooden casks and after 90 days, it is then added to the bulk. Once assembled it is left in the bottle for 2 months. Approximately 38.800 bottles are produced every year.
