The Le Grive bottling from Forteto della Luja in Montferrato, Piemonte, has been one of our strongest selling Italian red wines ever. Vintage after vintage this wine is always great. It's one of those wines that is universally liked and we've hardly ever seen anyone take a sip and NOT want to buy a bottle. It is a blend of 80% Barbera and 20% Pinot Nero (Noir) that is medium to full bodied, mouth filling and downright delicious. It has a gorgeous silky texture with smooth easy going tannins. The acidic edge of Barbera is softened by the addition of Pinot Noir, which also adds a pretty floral component and makes the wine complete and well structured.
