Grignolino is one of the historical and characteristic grapes of Piedmont and its value is enhanced even more by the limited quantity produced.
Normally planted in light, loose soils, Grignolino has always been identified with characteristics of finesse and lightness. However, our new vineyard has a soil rich in clay and silt (the hill takes its name from the latter in Italian= limo) which gives a fleshy and crisp superiority to the taste.
