GRIGNOLINO D'ASTI, DOC, 2015
  La Mondianese
 
LA MONDIANESE

In the heart of Piemont lies this well appointed 6-acre winery, surrounded by vineyards made up of some of the best growing areas in Piedmont.  La Mondianese is located in the province of Asti in the hilly area of Montemagno, loosely translated as (“big hill”) and Castagnole Monferrato.

The name Grignolino derives from the grape’s numerous pips, or “grignole” as they are called in the Piedmontese dialect. Each Grignolino grapevine yields very few bunches of grapes - grapes that happen to make an extraordinary wine.


Tasting notes: Delicate in style and color, light fruit of strawberries and raspberries, and with a clean finish.
