La Gironda, Soul, Monferrato Rosso
You don’t often come across Nebbiolo, the Langhe grape-variety par excellence, in Monferrato, despite the fact that it was cultivated on our hills in the past. We are convinced that it can reserve some delightful surprises in our soils, so we decided to do our own thing and grow it anyway, ignoring the trends. This is a wine made with the heart rather than the head, hence the name Soul, made with 100% Nebbiolo.
With its dull garnet red colour, it presents a complex and intense bouquet, with notes of violet and red fruit, and lighter scents of dried flowers and spices. Elegant and harmonious in the mouth, with sweet, silky tannins. Persistent, balanced and immensely pleasant.
The nice tannins in this wine are the perfect contrast for particularly rich and succulent rice and pasta dishes, as well as main courses generous in flavour, and sometimes even quite greasy. If you come to the area, try it with “Finanziera”! Highly enjoyable on its own too, this is the perfect glass of wine to relax with!
