You may never have heard of Ruche, but if you like aromatic grapes like Pinot Noir, and are searching for something that will sing with everything from Indian food to pizza, you've found your new best friend. A traditional grape from Italy's Piedmont region, this is a soft, easygoing red with intriguing aromas of cherry, plum, lavendar, and floral notes. Delicious and unique.

Rooty, spicy nose. Black cherry, raw ginger, dried violets. Lots of macerated dark berry fruit on the palate with notes of cinnamon and black tea. Definitely gets points for not being boring.

Pleasant surprise - never heard of this wine which is apparently a kitchen sink Piedmont blend but it works oh so well - gorgeous purity of red (cherry) & darker fruit, rich ripe concentrated w/caressing tannins with some spice & lifted floral notes and decent enough acidity to tie it all together on the palate and thru finish. Absolutely Fantastic

Not quite as memorable as the other Ruche I've had, but still very tasty- especially for the price!

Wasn't sure about this when I saw it in the store. Got two bottles due to an online review. Love it. Serve at real room temp for best flavor.

The red equivalent of Viognier, balanced, lively, and huge perfume...with Ned at Marcella's graduation party.

2011, Osel, Ruche, Di Castagnole Monferrato, Ruche. Very Pinot Noir like. Bright, transparent ruby with red fruit and spice. The spice and herbal aromas/taste we're not as prominent as I expected.

Nose had a lot of fruit. Medium body. Fruity with perhaps some baking spices.
