From: Piedmont, Italy
Varietal: Barbera and Dolcetto
Ercole (pronounced air-koh-lay) is a project aimed at honoring the work of the unsung heroes of Italy — the grape growers themselves.
Ercole, whose English translation is Hercules, is only made possible by a generations-old cooperative of local growers in the Monferrato area. Every fall, these men and women cultivate bright and balanced fruit, allowing us to make real wines that are transmitters of time and place.
The place, Monferrato, ranks among the most historic grape-growing areas of Piedmont. For that reason, we work primarily with Monferrato’s indigenous grape varieties. The fruit from this overlooked area gives us Ercole, a family of wines offering remarkable value. Enjoy these one-liter, screw-top bottlings unconditionally. Salute!
Tasting Notes: With the aromatic draw of fresh-cut watermelon, this rosato screams summertime in all its resplendent fun. Two stalwart grapes of Monferrato, Barbera and Dolcetto, form this lively rosato. Following a soft pressing of the grapes, the juice is left in contact with the skins for only a few hours, lending the wine its light pink hue.
As you may imagine, Piedmont only makes a tiny amount of rosato, so this fun and festive liter is also a rare quaffable treat. This fits our definition of a porch pounder, light enough to drink on its own, perfect for enjoying alone or with a picnic, and at a price that won't break the bank.
