2021 Grosjean Torrette - Vallee D'Aoste, Italy (750ml)
|Availability:||In stock (13)|
The Grosjean family has been farming in the high mountain village of Fornet in the Northern Italian Alps for generations, mostly making wine for their own use during the long winters. The family started commercially bottling wine after Dauphin Grosjean received accolades at a wine expo in 1969, and have continued to make all Organic, low intervention wines since. Their Torette is made from 80% Petit Rouge blended with Vien de Nus, Doucet, Fumin, and Mayolet grapes that are aged in stainless steel and oak casks. Expect a medium light body with notes of fresh red berries, autumnal leaves and forest floor, and light silky tannins on the finish. Great with seasonal vegetable soup served with fresh sourdough or alongside chicken cacciatore.
