NV La Kiuva Rosé de Vallee - Valle d'Aosta, Italy (750ml)
|Availability:||In stock (62)|
La Kiuva is a tiny co-op, founded in 1975 in the picturesque and wonderfully situated Vallée d’Aoste which borders both France and Switzerland. Due to its unique combination of high elevation, strong mountain winds, diluvial subsoils, and extremely steep, terraced pergola-trained vineyards, the Aosta Valley is highly regarded for producing natural, fresh and complex wines. This non-vintage cuvee, comprised of local varietals Gros Vien, Neyret and Picotendro (aka Nebbiolo) is light-bodied yet intense with savory aromas on nose, a remarkable flintiness, and notes of cranberry and rose petal on the palate. Pair with pork chops on the grill, salmon steak rubbed with garden-picked herbs or just sipped as an aperitif with olives and paté.
