About The Wine

The name of the grape Grignolino is derived from the Piemontese word grignole, which means “the pips” in the local dialect. The grape is rich in pips, or seeds, and as a result yields tannic wines. Historically, Grignolino has been consumed young as the locals wait for Barbera and Nebbiolo to age. Eugenio recommends serving this chilled, almost as if it was a white wine.

About The Producer

The singular wines of La Miraja have until now been impossible to find in the United States. The estate is nestled within the original castle of Castagnole Monferrato, constructed in the 11th century and retrofitted to serve as a cellar in the 1400s.

In this armory-turned-cellar, Eugenio Gatti turns out Barbera d’Asti, Grignolino, and his fabled Ruché. A seventh-generation viticulturist, Eugenio personally tends to the oldest vineyard of Ruché in Castagnole Monferrato, the original birthplace of Ruché. It is here that Eugenio Gatti devotes his life’s work to producing 840 transcendent cases of wine each year.
