Grignolino may just be the red wine of the summer you didn’t know you needed but trust me - you very much do! So very light in color that you could easily confuse it for a darker rosato, yet it finishes with just a hit of structure to remind you it is indeed a red wine. Aromatic and refreshing, it bursts with loads of crushed red rose petals, tart pomegranate and fresh raspberry fruit rounded out with just a kiss a tannin on the finish. This wonderfully refreshing red shows it's best with a bit of a chill and even better, this liter-sized bottle is 33% more fun than a 'regular' bottle of wine making this is perfect bottle to share with a friend of two.

What do I like to drink?
I tend to lean into ‘old world’ styles of wines - but that doesn’t mean only wines from the old world - that have great acidity to them. These wines are naturally food friendly... and I like to do some damage in the kitchen. But overall I’m a very seasonal wine drinker - warm weather has me leaning into fresh rosés and vibrant whites and when the weather turns cool, I love some Nebbiolo and heavier reds to go with the braised and richer foods of the season.
