GriXa


Monferrato Rosso D.O.C.

At the end of 1200, Nebbiolo was the most widespread and appreciated grape variety in the Asti territory and was mentioned as GRIXA (grey) grape in the agricultural treaties.

This wine is the result of a selection of old Nebbiolo vines carried out by the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences of the Turin University and tested in the Asti wine discrict, where Nebbiolo was the most common vine variety from 1200 to 1880.

A quotation from the novel The Charterhouse of Parma (1839) by Stendhal : “…buy me lots of Nebbiolo d’Asti…”.
