Grignolino is native to the Piedmont region of Northern Italy. It is a red grape which is predominately used to make lighter styled red wines as well as rosés. The name Grignolino derives from the word, “grignole” meaning “many pips” in the local Piedmontese dialect, which are also what gives Grignolino such high tannins.
