Grape: Petite Arvine
Region: Northern Italy> Vallee D'Aoste.
Notes: Sustainable farming. No perticides or herbicides.
Gold color with aromas of honey, ripe fruit, mineral, mountain flora with earthy mushroom and smoky undertones. Supple texture and refreshing acidity. Petite Arvine is a variety originally from Switzerland.
Elio Ottin, soulful, passionate winemaker owns 4 hectare estate vineyards in the Alps, overlooking the town of Aosta on the Villages of St Christophe and Quart, with south facing exposure.
The dry climate of the valley, and particularly of Aosta, an area subject to drought, is ideal to guarantee a perfect ripening of the grapes, and it favors the health of the grapes and the balance of all the components in the wine. The aromas are exalted by the amazing exposure, and by the strong temperature excursion. This is truly 'viticoltura de montagna' (Mountain Viticulture). Most of the work is still done by hand due to the rocky formation of the hills. No pesticides or herbicides are used.
