Piemonte Grignolino DOC 2018

This Grignolino is a small-production gem (at 4,000 bottles annually) that is incredibly food friendly.  Made from 100% Grignolino grapes, it shows the lightness and finesse which has made Grignolino a widely-appreciable wine.  Following fermentation, this wine is aged for 3 months in stainless steel to preserve its fresh, fruit-forward aromas.

Tasting Notes

Light ruby in color, aromas of red fruits and roses complement undertones of Bing cherries, strawberries, and hints of spice box.  On the palate, crisp acidity and smooth tannins make for a food friendly wine. 

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with fried seafood appetizers, Bagna Cauda, creamy veal-based dishes, and salume.
