Light red wine to drink slightly chilled
Piemonte DOC Grignolino 2021
Easy to drink and fragrant light red wine. Almost rosé but still not it.
Grignolino is the name of the grape variety, very old local one. It can give so different wines! Our one is full of fresh red fruits and a hint of spiciness (like white pepper).
4 facts about our Grignolino
We enjoy every step of making it!
  • Only from our vineyards
    Grignolino vineyard is part of the estate, situated just in front of the house. It was planted in 1978.
  • "Fauxrouge" technology
    The major part of the blend undergoes only 24-hour contact with grape skin and seeds. After that is fermented as rosé wine. The smallest part of the blend is fermented as regular red wine.
  • Unusual blend
    Grignolino 2021 — 87%, Grignolino 2020 aged in barrique for 1 year — 8%, Albarossa 2021 — 5%.
  • Label by an artist
    The label was made by my big friend — Kiko Perotti, a Verona born artist, famous for his paintings of flowers, birds and animals.
Just try Grignolino by Tenuta Foresta with…
…some light food. And enjoy it!
  • Aperitivo
    Chill Grignolino slightly and it would be nice as an aperitif even in hot summer
  • Salmon! Why not?
    Break the rule "with fish goes white wine". We discovered the pair Salmon — Grignolino Tenuta Foresta in Belgium, when our client restaurant organized blind food pairing dinner. This pair was amazing!
  • Chicken, turkey or rabbit
    Well, this is clear. For light meat goes light red wine.
  • Dark chocolate cake
    That was a big surprise even for us. We just wanted to finish the bottle opened for the dinner. Red currant, cranberries and red cherry that are easily distinguished in our Grignolino match perfect the taste and texture of dark chocolate.
Some words about winery
We’re a family owned small winery on the Monferrato hills in Piemonte, between Asti and Alba, less than 1 hour drive from Turin. Yes, it’s me in the photo and I run everything in the winery. To read more about our story, click here. And here you can find all the range of our wines.
Our wines
Wines with flowers on the labels are light and vibrant. Those with birds are bolder and more complex. And other labels have some peculiarity. For example sparkling wine by classic (Champagne) method is my personal passion. And for Nebbiolo we use the grapes from Barbaresco.
