A robust, earthy red that highlights the potential of low intervention winemaking in producing ageworthy wines. A blend of Freisa, Barbera, Dolcetto and Merlot with 15 years of age, this wine is characterized by complex and concentrated flavour profile marked by maturation. The nose and palate are rich with ripe red and black fruits, dried currants and notes of smoked meat and dried herbs. Round and full-bodied, this wine is velvet in the mouth and calls for a hearty food pairing.
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.
