2022 Valle d’Aosta Torrette

Château Feuillet
Discount Eligible $31.00
AT CART MAX

As with Manni Nössing, who lives mere miles from the Austrian border and whose first language is German, Château Feuillet inhabits a corner of Italy bordering France and Switzerland where many of the town, family, and grape names—as well as one of the two official languages—are French. The starring varieties in this Torrette, however (mostly Petit Rouge with a splash of Mayolet), have no counterparts in France. This uniquely Valdostano red is characterized by a charming freshness and a spicy, red-berry core. Pour it alongside a mushroom risotto with Fontina, the creamy Valle d’Aosta cheese, for a sublime regional pairing.

Sampler Includes:

2022 Valle d’Aosta Moscato Bianco  $35
Raised in stainless steel, Moscato produces aromas that are fiercely locked into this bottling. Honeyed, yet bone-dry, it has a hint of chestnut and would be as charming for an apéritif as with a cheese or dessert course.

2022 Valle d’Aosta Traminer Aromatico  $35

Expressive and pedigreed Feuillet’s Traminer might be the white Burgundy equivalent of the bunch. It spends some time on its lees, giving it a rounder mouthfeel. Pair it with fattier fish or slices of salty speck.

2022 Valle d’Aosta Petite Arvine $37
A grape of Swiss origin, Petite Arvine is a versatile white, persistent in length with a mouthwatering and crystalline minerality. It soaks up the sun but maintains a flinty edge.

2021 Valle d’Aosta Rosso Torrette Superieur  $37
A bright and plummy wine with a velvety texture, made from the native Petit Rouge variety. Serve this beauty with bolder fare in need of a refreshing companion.

2022 Valle d’Aosta Rosso Cornalin  $38

A spicy, smoky red with rustic undertones, Cornalin has pretty black fruit and is a great match for well-seasoned sausages and other charred meats.

2021 Valle d’Aosta Rosso Fumin  $43
A robust and pleasantly tannic rosso, Fumin has a floral quality with a bit of a bite—similar to peppery Syrahs of the northern Rhône.

Old cob-webbed wine bottles

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.
