2016 Heitz Grignolino
Grignolino, a medium-bodied varietal from the Piedmont region in northern Italy and rarely found in California. The scent of fresh strawberries in the glass is followed by a lively mix of red fruits on the palate. Soaring acidity is sculpted with delicate tannins and a nip of white pepper adds an assertive note to the finish. Lightly chilled, this is a stellar aperitif, and of course, it is perfect with your favorite Italian meal.
