Grignolino d’Asti Arlandino 2015 Tenuta Santa Caterina
Variety: Grignolino 100%
Ruby red color with garnet shadows.
The nose is surprising for finesse and elegance. So the red fruit, black cherry, follow all the richness of aromas, which enrich the undergrowth. Of course the small fruits, but also the brown leaves, the mosses and the mushrooms. Gentle spices and balsamic notes. Finally the cinchona and rhubarb.
In the mouth it is consistent with the nose, and confirms the expectations. Balanced and medium-bodied, he holds the center of the tongue with authority. The finish is persistent and inviting.
The grignolino you don’t expect. Beautiful, elegant and with presence. Among Piedmontese wines, Grignolino is the daily red wine, the one to drink while the other wines are ready. That’s not the case. Arlandino is a real wine, with all the characteristics that testify to it.
