Red Dawn, In The Glass (Tasting Albarossa In Monferrato)

Vinted on January 4, 2018 binned in 1WineDude TV, Italian Wine

For the most recent installment of the Monferrato in the Glass series over at, we provide another deeper dive into the vinous wares of the region, once again with Bava‘s Paolo Bava.

Paolo introduces me to Piedmonte’s version of Red Dawn: Albarossa. Albarossa has a unique history, even by historical-embarrassment-of-riches Italian standards. It’s actually relatively new, and something that really only could have been conceived within the hilly borders of Piedmonte (you can read up a bit more on Albarossa’s storied past here).

After viewing the vid below, you’ll have a much better idea of why drinking this wine will make you want to pronounce Albarossa with a slow, voluptuous, sing-songy Italian accent.

Red Dawn

For my latest installment over at, we go in-depth on Incrocio Dalmasso XV-31, better known as Albarossa… as in Red DawnWOLVERINES!!!

The Albarossa grape has a history that winds almost as much as the roads throughout the Piedmont hillsides, and in its own inimitable, roundabout way ended up achieving what its creator set out to accomplish, though not exactly in the way that he intended. All of which is just so adorably typical of Monferrato.
