Grignolino is an Italian black berry vine. Mainly cultivated in the areas of Asti and Monferrato Casalese and partly in marginal areas of the Langhe, it produces red berried grapes. Mixed with Freisa and Barbera grapes it provides wines with a more intense color. Known since the Middle Ages as Barbesino the name could still derive from gragnola, dialectal expression of Asti to indicate its seeds, very numerous in this grape. The bunches have a medium-large size with forms tending to the pyramidal while the medium-small berries tend to the elliptical shape. The vine, poorly resistant to diseases (tolerates only the mildew), prefers exposure to the sun and dry and sandy soils.
