Monferrato is a scenic wine region located in Piedmont, in northern Italy. This landscape of  iconic, rolling hills is located just south of the Po river, spanning the provinces of Alessandria and Asti. The Medieval town of Asti is a testament to the region’s history, with historic buildings and noble gardens in a region that dates back to the ancient Celts. 
 
The continental climate, with hot summers and cold winters combined with well-drained, tufo (volcanic) soils contribute to excellent growing conditions and grape balance. Monferrato received DOC status in 1994 with a paradigm that seems loose compared to others. National varietals are allowed to be blended with international ones, with the stipulation that single varietal releases must be at least 85% of the labeled main grape. 
 
Rossos can contain the native Piedmont grapes Barbera, Grignolino, Freisa, Dolcetto, and Brachetto blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir. Cortese Read more »

  • Tenuta Dei Re Grignolino d'Asti DOC 2011

    Snoothrank:

    I tasted this light bodied Piemonte Grignolino at dinner last night. It struck me for its bright ruby red color, very delicate red berry fruit aromas, especially cranberry. On the palate warm and dry, but fresh and elegant! (I think this winery exports to China) Grignolino goes well with everything from assorted antipasti to creamy cheeses. Read More
