An aged orange wine that reflects the natural characteristics of the land, the vines, and the vintage. Made from 100% Cortese, the fruit spends 60 days soaking on skins, resulting in intense aromas of spicy pear, hay, honey, and toasted hazelnuts. The palate is full-bodied with flavours of ripe apples and sweet spice, with a fine, fresh structure.
Neapolitan Guido Zampaglione settled in Piedmont in 2003. He still describes himself as a farmer by tradition and a winegrower by passion. Tenuta Grillo covers 32 hectares, 17 of which are vineyards. The yields are kept low, the harvests are manual and the vinification traditional: Long macerations are designed to produce wines with great ageing potential as is customary in Piedmont. The wines reflect the naturalness and the characteristics of the land, the vines and the year.
