Grapes Cabernet Sauvignon 30%, Merlot 30%, Nebbiolo 20%, Barbera 20%
Used to be called Ruc di Gnoc, Ruc is now the flagship red at Majolini, but it is a very difficult wine for them to sell and the vineyards are gradually being replanted with white grapes. Unfortunate as this is an excellent red with the abilities to age with great elegance.
Open, unforced fruit with sloe and blueberry, roasted peppers, violet and cassis. A vintage I am growing fond of, it is not Simone’s favourite but I think he has missed the pleasure of pure drinkability, which it has, what it lacks is colour and concentration and that is not a bad thing in my book. 13.5%
