CORAVIN tasting

With the Coravin* system, visitors can create a personal wine tasting experience by choosing among the following old vintages of Ruchè that are now off the market and available only in the winery:

Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato D.o.c.g.
• LACCENTO
• LIMPRONTA
• PRIMA DECADE

Barbera d’Asti D.o.c.g.
• LEQUILIBRIO
• NUDA

Barolo D.o.c.g.
• LEVOLUZIONE

€ 10 for each wine selected

*The Coravin System™ uses patented technology to pour wine without taking the cork out of the bottle. A thin, medical grade needle passes through the cork, a capsule of argon gas pressurizes the wines, and the wine is poured through the cork into the glass. Because the cork is never removed, it prevents oxidation, and the wine can continue to age unaffected.
