Tasting Notes

From the sole winery in the village of Maretto in Asti, the Russo family specialize in the traditional grapes of the region. This Grignolino, whose name is derived from the grapes many seeds, is a stellar example of this Piedmontese variety. The grapes are hand-picked, are fermented and aged in stainless steel, and see about 7 days maceration on the skins. This light dry red wine has red fruit, floral, and herbaceous aromas. Pair this with roast pork and cabbage in mustard sauce.
