2018 AGOSTINO PAVIA Grignolino d'Asti 75cl (Piedmont, Italy)
Style - Vibrant
Grapes - 100% Grignolino
Tasting - Such a fun wine. Grignolino is a rare variety but one that ought to be seen more of if you love light reds with high acid and mineral 'crunch'. There's strawberry juice and cranberry flavour here and it reminds us a bit of some Jura reds made from Ploussard.
FYI: One of those 'inbetweener' wines that Piedmont seems to do so well. Along with with Barbera and Dolcetto, a wine to get on and drink while you wait for the great Barolo and Barbarescos to mature.
