2014 Valle d’Aosta Rosso “Fumin”

Château Feuillet

2014 Valle d’Aosta <i>Rosso</i> “Fumin” Château Feuillet - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

Maurizio Fiorano is always hard at work every time I visit his tiny cellars in the town of Saint-Pierre, just east of Courmayeur after you traverse the Monte Bianco tunnel coming from France. He is a perfectionist in all aspects of his profession, and it shows in his precise, invigorating mountain wines. This red, produced from the native Fumin grape, has the smoky hints you would expect from a grape with this name. It is Maurizio’s most full-bodied red. The flavors and aromas are uniquely Valdostana, this proud region of stunning peaks that shares French and Italian cultural heritage. I encourage you to buy a few bottles and discover what I mean—you won’t regret it.

About Valle d’Aosta

Italy’s smallest region by surface area and by annual production, Valle d’Aosta is also one of its most strikingly beautiful. In the heart of the Alps bordering France and Switzerland, this is a stark landscape dominated by jagged, snow-capped peaks, where tiny terraced vineyard parcels cling to steep, rocky slopes of sand and alluvial deposits. Winemaking here dates back to Roman times, and today a growing number of small-scale producers persist with the heroic kind of viticulture required to brave this extreme terrain.

In the shadow of the Mont Blanc, the Valle d’Aosta runs west to east, providing excellent southern exposure to the vineyards on its northern slopes. In spite of the altitude—these are some of Europe’s highest vineyards—the hot, dry summers provide conditions in which a number of indigenous varieties, along with others of French or Swiss origin, truly thrive. Petite Arvine, Prié Blanc, Petit Rouge, Fumin, and Cornalin are just a few of the grapes responsible for the region’s whites and reds, which range from bright juicy, aromatic, and mineral-driven to powerful and rustic in character.

Château Feuillet represents our first Valle d’Aosta import. With its singular wines from an absolutely breathtaking environment, it is certainly a region to get excited about.
