2021 Valle d’Aosta Traminer Aromatico

Château Feuillet
Discount Eligible $35.00
SOLD OUT

When driving through Italy’s Valle d’Aosta, watch for lofty vineyards and complicated, multilingual exit signs. Both are influenced by their French neighbors in the north but have a decidedly regional character—much like this Traminer Aromatico. It pays lovely homage to its French cousin, Alsatian Gewurztraminer, but with a Valdostano interpretation: the nose is floral, but these are surely mountain wildflowers, and the palate is perfectly crisp and quenching.

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.
