Grazzano Badoglio AT, Italy (Piedmont)
Grignolino d’Asti DOC
We are thrilled to share this exciting grape variety with you. It has all the captivating flavors of the Nebbiolo grape but on a lighter frame for drinkability. Flavors are energetic with red fruits like cherry and pomegranate, alpine herbs, rose hip, and dry earthy undertones. A medium to light bodied wine with a lively minerality and freshness that accentuates the earth, spice, and leather of non fruit flavors.
