Castello di Montegrosso "Ruleja" Barbera d'Asti 1995 DOCG
Region: Barbera d'Asti
An amazing vintage! 1995 and 1996 were two of the best vontages in decades in Lombardia.
This wine has been ageing in the cellars of Castello di Montegrosso since 1996 and is just now reached its peak. We all know this wine would not have made it this long if it were in our home cellar! For this reason the winery decided to hold the wine until it was time!
The feudal Castle of Montegrosso d’Asti, built in 1134 by order of the Marquis Bonifacio del Vasto, lord of the city of Asti, dominates and extensive hilly area which is very much dedicated to the culture of vines, and it is the castle’s tranquil spacious, centuries-old cellars which provide a worthy home for the noble D.O.C. and D.O.C.G. wines of these hills.
These wines, which are produced according to traditional and consistent winemaking methods, are selected at the right moment, matured in oak casks, and at the point when they reach the correct degree of maturity they are bottled and stored.
Love of wine is something which is passed on from father to son, from one generation to the next. In fact there are documents to prove that the Motta family have been wine makers since 1794; and are therefore proud to show our experience and traditions by presenting today, just as we have done in the past, the very best of Piedmontese wine making.
