UCCELLETTA | MONFERACE Grignolino del Monferrato Casalese DOC - Box

His Majesty, il Grignolino

This rare Grignolino takes its name from our "cru" vineyard atop Bricco dell'Uccelletta: about 1.3 hectares of vines, owned by our family for over 80 years. This area is home to various bird species that keep us company with their chirping as we work in the vineyard. This is not a "simple" Grignolino. The 24-month maturation in Austrian oak barrels, followed by an equally long aging in the bottle, contributes to the elegance and complexity of this wine: the deep red color with the typical orange reflections of Grignolino is accompanied by spicy and balsamic aromas. On the palate, it is dry, vertical, with soft and silky tannins. The finish is extremely persistent

Pairings

Our Uccelletta lends itself to experimentation and combinations, a wine for those who are not held back by anything, not even in the kitchen. Try it with cod or pasta with chili peppers and crunchy bread crumbs, risotto with raschera cheese and hazelnuts, maccheroni al ferretto with pumpkin and soppressata, octopus alla puttanesca, Hungarian goulash, veal shank in milk, guinea fowl with hazelnuts.
