Valle d’Aosta Donnas Superiore DOC is made from the same grapes as the unaged version, and, as with that one, we're dealing with a well-established red wine made from the Nebbiolo grape (85-100%), with permission to add Freisa and/or Neyret (0-15%).

The wine is cultivated near the city of Donnas in the bottom part of the valley surrounding the city.

The color is ruby red with garnet reflections. It has a fine, characteristically spicy nose, and a velvety, ample and harmonious taste with a slightly bitter finish.

Mandatory aging is 30 months, of which 12 months must be in the barrel, and it has a shelf life of 5 years or more.

Goes well with roast and heavier dishes.
