VALUE OF THE MONTH
TENUTA LA PERGOLA’S TASTY ROSSO
by Dixon Brooke
Italy’s Piemonte is home to some of the world’s best table wines—in addition, of course, to some of the world’s best wines, period. The Monferrato region, northeast of the Barolo zone, is a veritable treasure trove of native varietals, fertile rolling hills, and both quality and value in certain well-obscured corners. Our personal homage to this great historical viticultural area is this everyday pleasure-filled dandy composed of Barbera, Bonarda, Freisa, Croatina, and Dolcetto. Fill up the trunk and drive this baby home!
