Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Tangy, silky, balanced and lithe, this ’10 Alpine Rosso offers tremendous bang for its buck. A blend of 85% Picotendro (the local name for Nebbiolo) and the rest split up between local varieties Freisa and Neyret, this wine complements its dusty tannins from the Nebbiolo with juicy, pure red fruit, provided by the other two components. Grown in rocky soils on steep slopes, this Rosso is considered to be the Barolo or Barbaresco of Vallee d’Aosta. Aged for at least two years in 25 HL oak casks, the wine gives a beautiful nose full of violets and dried cherries followed with forest smoke, and as it opens in the glass, coffee mixes with minerality, showing the terroir of a wine deriving from vineyards carved out of the rocky Alps. Bright, elegant and surprisingly full-bodied, this ’10 Rosso could be your new summertime go-to red.
