Defined as the most red of the white wines and the most white of the red wines, this local wine of Monferrato has always struggled to find its place both in the domestic and the world market.
I created this product in order to fluster slightly the way in which Grignolino is made. It was usually considered as being a light wine, with low alcohol grading and was drunk only when the Piemonte Barbera was too strong. I, however, wanted to create an important product with a vine that I believe has enormous potential. It is a full-bodied, dry wine with a strong personality that is suitable for meat, but also ideal for some fish dishes such as fish soups.
When the Grignolino d’Asti is left to ripen at length on the plant and is produced as a varietal, like ours, you’ll love it from the first sip.
