Grignolino d'Asti 'Grigné' Montalbera 2021

Grignolino Grignè by Montalbera is a Piedmontese red wine with a delicate structure that amazes for its neatness and aromatic complexity: from a light ruby red garment with orange nuances it releases a floral bouquet, with hints of maraschino and a light component of oriental spices. At the mouthfeel it is harmonious, warm and pleasant, with an aromatic bitterish rhubarb finish.

Glass
Medium open goblet
Medium open goblet

Perfect for young and medium bodied red wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion
