Ercole is the brainchild of Weston Hoard, aka "The Piedmont Guy", an American who spent four years working for the renowned Barolo winery Paolo Scavino. Primarily an importer, the Piedmont Guy represents about a dozen different great producers from (you guessed it) the Piedmont region. In addition to all that, Hoard has his own Ercole line which utilizes the work of a generations old cooperative of grape growers in Monferatto to make value-driven wines that are representative of their place of origin. This is just the third ever vintage of Ercole Rosato, a liter bottle blend of roughly two thirds barbera and one third dolcetto, the workhorse grapes of the region. Just a few hours of skin contact and a low abv make for a light and pleasant rose that will pair well with your springtime salads, virtually any lighter fare, or dare I say it, it's just nice to drink on it's own!
