Torraccia del Piantavigna Ramale
Ramale is the name of a small stream running through Ghemme, Italy. The wine comes from the best vineyards in the hills of Ghemme, but outside the D.O.C.G. region, but receives the same care and attention. The wine is aged for at least two years, but can be enjoyed slightly younger than its Ghemme and Gattinara counterparts.
A deep ruby, and after adequate aging, obtains an orangey hue on the rim. Ripe red fruits, violets, and spicy notes with licorice on the nose. There are rich fruits and soft tannins supporting a bright acidity.
Red meat, cheeses, seasoned salami, and local risotto dishes.
