Heitz Cellar 2016 Grignolino Napa Valley
Grignolino is an Italian varietal from the Piedmont region in northern Italy. The Grignolino grape has large berries with many seeds, very thin skin and a light color. We have developed a great affection for Grignolino since we discovered it back in 1959 and are the only producer of a 100% varietal Grignolino in the U.S.
The Palate expresses fresh strawberries followed by a lively mix of red fruits. Soaring acidity is sculpted with delicate tannins and a nip of white pepper adds an assertive note to the finish. Lightly chilled, it is one of our favorite aperitifs, and of course, it is perfect with your favorite Italian meal.
