Wooden Box Wine
My cousin is my die-hard fan. Once she asked me: “Is that wooden box wine very expensive?”. I was stunned and ask: “What do you mean by wooden box wine”. She then told me: “My friend Simon told me that he had never tried those wine packed in wooden box. Is it very expensive?”.
I laughed and fell from my chair! Then I explained. Many producers pack their precious wine such as flag ship label in wooden case for safe logistic. Original wood case protects wine from shocks, breakage and theft. Almost all Classified Bordeaux from Haut Medoc are packed in wooden case. In general wine packed in wooden case are comparatively expensive. However many precious, fine, and rare wine are packed in cartoon boxes. For example: world renowned Pingus from Spain and Soldera from Montalcino Tuscany are packed in cartoon boxes though their good vintages are sold up to ten thousand HK dollars per bottle.
There is always exception. My cousin’s question reminds me that I have a small handful of “Wooden Box Wine” of good value for money.
Grignolino of Piemonte Italy is not well known among drinkers. It is very much like its folk Ruche in terms of destiny and character. It was once close to extinction. It is very floral with aromas of rose, acacia and violet. The biggest difference is the strong astringency in the after taste when it is young. The word “ Grignolino” indeed means a lot of pits. I created a nick name for it: Pitty. Since it has got lots of pits, it contains very high tannin. High tannin enable longevity in bottle. Cellar potential can be up to 30 to 40 years. It makes light bodied wine but can paired with heavy meat and it is very versatile. If you like Pinot Noir, you will probably like Gringnolino.
Montalbera Grignolino L’Anfora is made by awards winning wine maker Luca Caramelino. It is aged in antique amphora in order to keep the least human intervention and the original flavour. It is natural, delicate with much finesse, elegant and classy. Therefore, it is worth being packed in wooden box.
