Crealto Grignolino Marcaleone 2018
100% Grignolino from a 2 hectare vineyard of clay and limestone-gypsum soils, with a south/southwest exposure. The vines are 50 years old. Completely organic.
Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tanks followed by an additional 8 months in tank and 2-3 months in bottle.
Beautiful, light ruby red wine with a medium body and typical Grignolino aromas. There’s a hint of smokiness and tart cherry on the nose. Light in color and body with fresh acidity that makes it ideal with rich cured meats. The tannins melt away when paired with fatty prosciutto. As Eleonora and Luigi Costa say of Grignolino: “odd wine, wine difficult and less lucrative but deeply loved.”
