GRIGNOLINO D’ASTI D.O.C.
Arlandino well adapts to Grignolino as Grignolino well adapts to Monferrato and its people. A harmonious, pleasant and reserved landscape, that in words and gestures of its inhabitant often reveals the great gift of irony. Arlandino, whose fragrance and personality are almost impossible to classify according to traditional canons, comes from the Poderi dei Mossetti vine and the Penango and Bisoglio vineyards, which were chosen for planting of this typical local cultivar since 1300. White calcareous soils, rich in freshness, distinguish the earth and give Arlandino fragrance and structure.
