Grignolino d’Asti doc
Grignolino is part of the history of old Piedmont grape varieties and is collocated in the area between the towns of Asti and Casale Monferrato. The name almost certainly derives from the word “grignole”, which in the Asti dialect means particularly numerous grape pips. It is a very demanding grape variety in terms of climate and soil, difficult to cultivate and vinify, but it produces an original, unpredictable and creative wine which is widely appreciated.
More or less pale ruby red colour, delicate in the nose with notes of fruit and brushwood often accompanied by characteristic scents of white pepper. It is austere and refined on the palate, dry with a characteristic presence of tannins and a pleasantly bitterish aftertaste.
Suitable with hors d’oeuvres, vegetable pies, duck, white meat and fried dishes. Definitely worth trying with fish dishes.
