All strawberries and elbows. Bright red fruit and tart acidity.

My first Grignolino and it sort of reminds me of a red-fruited Dolcetto. It’s remarkably light pink/magenta in color. Very lovely nose of strawberries and cherries. On the palate, more strawberries and some minerals, almost like a strawberry soda but without the bubbles. Easy to drink if not a bit one dimensional. Almost zero tannin but enough acid to make the fruit sufficiently zippy for lighter fare. A wine to drink now.

Very simple. White pepper, flowers, and a touch of light cherry fruit.

Continues to be my favorite Grignolino d'Asti. Beautiful nose and pale color, slightly bitter finish. Love this wine.
