The Marchesi Incisa della Rocchetta Grignolino d'Asti appears a clear and bright ruby red color in the glass. The nose reveals notes of strawberry and rose with spicy notes (white pepper). On the palate, the wine is light-bodied, structured with fine tannins, persistent with an elegant finish.
Despite the light color, but thanks to its tannic structure, Grignolino is a very good match for a wide range of dishes: from pasta dishes with tomato sauces, pizzas, light cheeses and charcuteries to grilled meats and fish, vegetarian dishes, sushi and Asian cuisine in general. It can be served chilled and enjoyed as an ideal summer wine.
With the uncompromising attention we pay to quality, innovation and the terroir, our wines are the typical example of the prestigious viticulture of the Monferrato hills. Each of our wines reflects balance, harmony and complexity that can only come from long experience, dedication and passion.
Made with Grignolino grapes, vinified and aged in stainless steel vats.
Grignolino is a grape varietal indigenous to Monferrato, and one of the oldest from the region. The wine produced with these grapes has a light ruby -red color. On the nose it shows delicate wild strawberry- and spice notes, and on the palate it reveals an important tannic structure, as pleasant as it is unexpected. Grignolino, that was at risk of disappearing from the Piedmontese viticulture, is now experiencing an important rediscovery by fans of native, autochthonous vines.
