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

Azienda Agricola Daniele Saccoletto, Grignolino, Piemonte, Italy

{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.
