Facts about this wine

Wine: Red wine
Taste: Dry
Volume: Strong
Min. alcohol: 12%
Mandatory Storage: Min. 1 years
Storage potential: 4 years

This red wine comes from the subzone, Arnad-Montjovet DOC, and is produced from the same grapes as the less-aged Valle d’Aosta Arnad-Montjovet Rosso DOC. It also comes from the low part of the valley.

The wine can be a bit reminiscent of the Nebbiolo wines from Piemonte and must contain Nebbiolo (70-100%), along with Dolcetto and/or Vien-de-Nus, Freisa, Pinot Noir or other local red grapes (0-30%).

The wine is cultivated around the cities of Arnad, Montjovet, Verrès, Issogne, Challand-Saint Victor, Hône and Champdepraz.

The wine is ruby red with garnet reflections, and the aroma is harmonious with hints of almonds. The taste is smooth, with a discreetly bitter aftertaste and can be a bit similar to Donnas from the same region.

The mandatory aging period for Superiore (or Supérieur) is 1 year.
