La Crotta di Vegneron, Fumin "Esprit de Follet", Val d'Aosta DOC, Italy

Regular price £24.99

Superb producer, making this unique Alpine treat - a floral red, with elegant structure.

Situated in the Val d'Aosta DOC, Le Crotta de Vegneron vines are grown on southward facing, fragmented vineyards set on steep mountain slopes. 35% of the total production is red grapes and 65% white grapes. La Crotta di Vegneron's philosophy centres on the enhancement of autochthonous vines such as Petit Rouge, Fumin, and Vien de Nus, in addition to the traditional ones such as Muscat de Chambave and Nus Malvoisie. The company also produces international wines such as Pinot Noir, Gamay and Müller Thurgau.

Tasting Note: Deep ruby red - violet colour. A fine bouquet, intense and persistent, spicy and floral with notes of vanilla, white pepper, cloves, red fruit and cherry. Dry, warm, soft and fresh with elegant tannin structure. Full bodied, well balanced and a long lasting finish
