ADD

The Torrette denomination designates reds made primarily from the Petit Rouge grape, grown high in the mountains of Valle d’Aosta in the shadow of Monte Bianco. Typically, these wines are light, floral, and teeming with energy, but here we have a slightly different creature. To create this Torrette Supérieur, the grapes are dried for several days after harvest, then pressed and aged in barrel to give an equally lively red with a bit more guts and bass notes. Feuillet’s rendition features whiffs of cracked pepper, bursting wild forest berries, and crunchy mountain minerals. There is nothing else quite like it. –Anthony Lynch
