This wine derives its name from the Piemontese dialect word “grignole’, which means grape seeds. The Grignolino grape has a lot of these seeds, responsible for great tannic structure. Grignolino is a very old grape variety from Piedmont, grown and vinified since the Middle Ages. The Grignolino grapes come from their “Garbera” vineyard situated in a prominent position on the hills surrounding the village of Rocchetta Tanaro in Monferrato.
