New arrival From Tenuta Montemagno, Italy
GRIGNOLINO D’ASTI D.O.C.
One of the oldest indigenous varieties in the Monferrato, it has been
known since the Middle Ages as Barbesino, but it actually takes its
name from the dialect word “gragnola”, which refers to the seeds,
which are very numerous in this grape. The long maturing with skin
contact without the seeds brings out the full aroma of dried roses
and the aromatic complexities of wild strawberry, wild berries and,
in particular, raspberries.
The taste profile reveals the personality of a wine that is uninhibited
and versatile in terms of food pairing, fairly mouth-filling, with
tannins that are present but not aggressive, a suitably crisp, dry
finish, and a good follow-through with the fruity notes that appear
in the bouquet.
Serve at 17°-18°C.
