In the northern most areas of Piedmont, Italy, a tiny winery lies on the border to Switzerland. Cantine Garrone produces a fun red wine I came across recently. A smart blend of Nebbiolo, Croatina and a touch of Barbera grapes, scattered across small plots in the mountainous area in the Ossola Valley. It’s actually a local variety of the Nebbiolo grape called Prünent, sourced from vines that average between 60-80 years old. Fermented in steel tanks and served young, natural and fresh.
A fantastic wine to be enjoyed on its own or paid with Italian classics. A real value for money purchase.
