  • Deceptively light in color given its structure, with a propensity towards orange hues rather than garnet, grigné , in local dialect means "to smile" as well as "many seeds" and indeed, if crushed too severely these seeds would impart a bitterness to the wine. Thankfully, 6 generation-old Montalbera of Monferrato uses only the gentlest of crushes for their Grignolino, creating a light, but complex wine that begs one to break out in a toothy grin.
