2014 Grignolino "Il Cornalasca" (Saccoletto, Azienda Agricola Vitivinicola Daniele)

Azienda Agricola Daniele Saccoletto, Grignolino, Piemonte, Italy, 2011

{organic} 100% Grignolino

EARTHY RED FRUIT, WALNUT & SPICY BALSAMICO, FUNKY & FUN

Welcome to Daniele Saccoletto's world, where the DOC (Italian wine authorities, but not cool like us) doesn't matter. Extremely long fermentation times with natural yeast, followed by years of aging, result in some awesome, unique expressions of familiar Piemontese varieties. His Grignolino is brickish and tawny (a sure sign of a red wine with some years to it), with extracted, deep, red fruit character interwoven with suggestions of earthy olive, balsamico, and herbaceous spice. Serious tannins are balanced by zesty acidity, making this wine terrifically food-friendly and captivating.

Serving Suggestions: Pizza w/ olive oil, garlic, roasted red peppers and finocchiona salami. Porcini mushroom and rosemary risotto topped w/ sliced ribeye steak, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and chopped chives.

2013 Grignolino d'Asti "La Partia Granda" (Cantamessa, Giorgio)

Giorgio Cantamessa, Grignolino d'Asti "La Partia Granda", Piemonte, Italy 2013

100% Grignolino

STRAWBERRY & CHERRY, FLORAL, LEAN & LIVELY

Bright, refreshing, and with a decidedly athletic build, Grignolino is a Piemontese hallmark that woefully few people have the opportunity to try outside of its region of origin. It fills a youthful niche similar to that of its fellow countryman, Dolcetto, or France's Beaujolais, but Grignolino is usually a bit firmer and lighter with a serious structure belied by its pale color. Bright berryish fruit, rosy floral notes, and spicy mineral abound. Cantamessa specializes in excellent representations of the classic wines from the rare grapes of Asti.

Serving Suggestion: A traditional white wine-braised ossobuco with garlic and anchovies and garnished with gremolata. Steamed Vietnamese pork dumplings with sausage, vermicelli, mushrooms, and onion.
