Crotin 1897 ‘San Patelu’ Grignolino d'Asti DOC 2018
This product is currently sold out.
Light weight Grignolino but packed with tannin, this is so Piemontese! High on pepper filled fragrance (reminiscent of delicate pinot noir) with acidity and Nebbiolo-like tannin, this wonderful wine should be on pursued by elegant wine drinkers everywhere. From a single hectare (Grignolino is sadly a rarity in Piedmont these days) of organically farmed vines, wine making in stainless steel.
"Yum. Strawberry and raspberry, maybe red cherry, but pretty much all the fresh and juicy red fruits your heart desires. There’s also some aniseed and almond, orange peel, lightness and crunch, a pomegranate and cranberry freshness, a light rasp of tannin, and a pretty red fruit finish of solid length. Yum, again. Chill it lightly, and you’ll be smiling. The score is, for the most part, irrelevant. It’s one of those wines that’s pure joy to drink." Gary Walsh - The Wine Front
