Crealto Grignolino Marcaleone
This wine comes from low-yielding, 55 year-old vines planted in a steep, well-exposed, vineyard that enjoys constant breezes from the valley below. It is fermented and vinified in stainless steel vats for a minimum of eight months and then rests at least another two months in bottle before release. Light ruby in hue, “Marcaleone” is medium-bodied and succulent with tart cherry, berry, and savory spice notes. Eleonora and Luigi recommend it with cured meats, noting that the tannins and acidity to mesh nicely with rich foods.
