Tenuta La Pergola 2020 Monferrato Rosso Cisterna d'Asti, Piedmont Italy
This Monferrato Rosso – Selected by Kermit Lynch was first made in 2009 using a blend of the region's red varieties. It's been a hit every year since and still an amazing value. Loaded with brambly berries, bright acidity, and soft, earthy tannins, the wine is a faithful representation of Piemontese reds at bargain cost: just what you would want in your carafe at a roadside trattoria, and the perfect weeknight red to gulp down at home.
Blend is mostly Barbera with small amounts Dolcetto, Bonarda, Freisa and Croatina.
