There are many sources for this rose in Italy: Nino Sanremo, Le Rose di Nicola Cavina, Claragarden, Magi Rose....

"Monferrato" is the name of a particular region in nort-west Italy, famous for its good wines.
The rose was chosen for her colour and re-named to promote the area and the wine; plants of 'Monferrato' where planted -in a traditional way- as a leader in grapevine rows in vineyards.

Was very keen to get my hands on a plant of this - the bush looked gorgeous in the catalogue. Unfortunately it hasn't been a great experience - she has been utterly miserable with mildew in my no spray garden in wet cold NW England. No prima ballerina!
