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.
