WTN: Grignolino beauty

by Keith M » Fri Apr 10, 2009 3:10 am

2006 La Casaccia Grignolino Poggeto (Grignolino del Monferrato Casalese DOC, Piemonte, northwestern Italy) cork closure, 12% - imported to USA by Oliver McCrum Wines, Richmond, California – my first Grignolino – appears cloudy pale cranberry, smell slight cranberry, rocks, metals, with air, fruit, flowers, blood, taste tender and delicious from first impression, flowers, tender fruit, delicate, light, and delicious, a juice box for adults, how do I not drink this wine every week?, a bit of tang to keep things interesting, some blueberry tar with iron, but mostly just juicy deliciousness, the kind of wine that makes my mouth water, still lovely on day three, beautiful stuff, for $16, are you kidding me?

We do not often see notes on this varietal, so interesting. Might be perfect for those drinkers wanting a red that is a tad on the lighter side. At wine tastings downtown, I am often asked for a nice red to be drunk socially!!

I don't know why I never see any Grignolino round here. There is a definite place for a delicious lightish red like this.

I love it when wine sparks that reaction.
