A wine selection that has been awarded by the Italian wine guide Gambero Rosso for the year 2021. Unique wines with great ageing potential, whose creation was driven by the desire to fully express the Monferrato territory. The production is limited and grapes derive from individual vineyard plots. In addition to the Grignolino wine Monferace - that ages 30 months in wood and 30 months in the bottle and has been awarded by Gambero Rosso for the second time with the highest score - you will find our Silente delle Marne, a monovarietal Chardonnay. This wine was honoured by the prominent wine guide with the two-red-glasses award. Furthermore, it includes our Arlandino, a Grignolino wine which matures in stainless steel, representing a popular version in the Monferrato area and granting this almost forgotten grape variety its true value.
The package includes bottles in 0,75 L format of the following wines:
