Region: Valle d`Aosta
Type: Red Wine
Grape: Petit Rouge/Gamay/Pinot Noir/Gamaret
Located in the shadow of Mont Blanc in far Northwest above the Piedmont, this is one of the smallest D.O.s in Italy at around 5 hectares, and Danilo owns a little over 1 hectare of that, centered in the town of Arvier. It’s located in an amphitheater that shoots straight up from a small stream and traps the heat of the sun.
This wine is fermented spontaneously and aged in non-temperature-stabilized steel tanks in Danilo's basement two stories below the earth’s surface. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, with low sulfur.
Deep, black-red color. Bursting with aromas and flavors of black cherries, stones, wildflowers, and a touch of the sauvage. Rustic, with nice acidity and freshness.
