Join us this Monday, March 12th, from 5 to 7pm, as we welcome some of our favorite Alto Piemonte winemakers to the shop. Just like their neighbors to the south, this winery focuses on the Nebbiolo grape and all that it can do. They produce one wine that is 100% Prunent Nebbiolo, a regional clone of Nebbiolo, from vines between 60 and 80 years old. They also produce two blends, still primarily Nebbiolo but with other indigenous grapes — Barbera and Croatina — that add lightness and juiciness. The Ca d’ Mate is 20% Barbera, while the Munaloss is a blend of Barbera, Croatina and that beautiful Nebbiolo.
These are serious wines, yet they are replete with joy and pretty red fruit. The winemakers at Cantine Garrone put so much effort, and so much heart into their wine, that you can taste the passion and the tradition. Bring home a bottle for your next pasta night, and you won’t be disappointed.
