2019 Didier Gerbelle Torrette 'L'Atoueyo' DOP
Torrette is a sub-zone of the Valle d'Aosta in the Alps of northwestern Italy. Valle d'Aosta Torrette DOC wines are produced predominantly from the Petit Rouge grape variety, making a floral, medium-bodied red wine with good levels of minerality.
The “Vigne Tsancognein” Torrette (a blend of mostly Petit Rouge with some Fumin, Cornalin and Prié Rouge) is the ultimate après-ski wine. Uncork it by the fire after a day on the slopes and you’ll see what I mean: it’s sharp fruit tones and rustic secondary aromas reinvigorate the senses.
