The name is derived from the Piemontese dialect word 'grignole’, which means grape seeds. The Grignolino grape has a lot of these seeds, responsible for great tannic structure. You will at first be puzzled by this wine’s color, similar to that of a rose. Despite this, the wine reveals great structure and a delicate dryness. Grignolino is a terroir-driven wine, a rarity in Monferrato. In a world of sameness, the varietal cuts through with stunning eccentricity and quality.
