In a quest to prove our ‘loosely based’ comparative theory, we moved our pawns gingerly toward to the sovereign RED fortress of BAROLO in Piemonte, north west Italy.
Immediately distinctive, Timorasso is one grape not trying to be anything great. It just simply is. You haven’t tried it yet ? Are you MAD…don’t let another day of 2017 pass you by.
Ruchè is one of the most outstanding native Italian reds that you’re ever likely to come across. And when you do, you’ll know immediately why.
Here at THENATIVEGRAPES we’ve got plenty more to learn about the majesty of NEBBIOLO and one of its greatest manifestations, BAROLO. So where better to clear the fog and celebrate the legend than face to face with a few of these garnet gems. Of course, it’s not something that happens every week. Commercial reality sees to that ;-)
No surprise that our native grape adventures continue to bring us back to Italy’s Piemonte.
After all it is a grape paradise for the ‘Lost & Found’. And man, we enjoyed the bite of a seriously happenin’ Great White.
