2021 Valle d’Aosta Rosso “Torrette Supérieur”

Château Feuillet
Discount Eligible $37.00
SOLD OUT

Torrette is an appellation made predominantly from Petit Rouge, another local grape that gives a very dark, fruity, and crunchy red wine. Maurizio typically blends in some of the native Mayolet for texture in his regular Torrette bottling, which he raises in stainless steel tanks. For this version, he dries the Petit Rouge grapes briefly, then ages the resulting wine in large casks. Despite this treatment, it remains fresh and vigorous—a gripping, delightfully complex mountain red that makes a hauntingly delicious match for Fontina cheese!

Inspiring Thirst

I want you to realize once and for all: Even the winemaker does not know what aging is going to do to a new vintage; Robert Parker does not know; I do not know. We all make educated (hopefully) guesses about what the future will bring, but guesses they are. And one of the pleasures of a wine cellar is the opportunity it provides for you to witness the evolution of your various selections. Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
