Grignolino (gree-no-LEE-no)

Native to Piedmont, Italy, where it is the source of light-reddish colored, frothy, crisp wines that can also have a tannic bite. The name may come from grignòle, a Piedmontese dialect word for pips or seeds because grignolino is known for the high number of seeds in each berry.
