Fumin "elévé en fut de Chêne" Valle d'Aosta DOC 2020 - Maison Anselmet

Every Italian region prides itself on its indigenous, i.e. typical, grape varieties. The Valle d'Aosta is no exception, despite (or perhaps thanks to) its particular Alpine location. Among these is the black grape Fumin, which is cultivated throughout the central valley, along the banks of the river, and up to an altitude of over 600 metres. Its particular name probably derives from the bluish bloom that covers its ripe berries and makes them look almost smoky. Anselmet offers it here in a very special version, élevé en fût de chêne, matured in oak barrels. A pure Fumin, after the classic red vinification, the wine is in fact aged in French oak barrels for a period of no less than 18 months. We thus discover a beautiful wine characterised by a ruby red colour, with evident purple reflections. An intriguing wine, it reveals particular aromas of embers and berries. In the mouth it is dense, thanks also to the high alcohol content, and well structured. Justly tannic, it has a long, pleasant finish that brings to mind notes of Mediterranean herbs and officinal plants. It is the right wine to accompany tasty meat dishes. Excellent with cheese escalopes or, for lovers of regional combinations, with the classic fondue.

It takes a certain amount of heroism to decide to make wine in the Aosta Valley. And obviously a pinch of madness too. Qualities that are certainly not lacking in the Anselmet household, which has been involved in this since ancient times. It seems, in fact, that the first traces of an Anselmet working among the vines and barrels at the foot of Mont Blanc date back to 1585. Since then, from father to son, the Anselmet family has gradually consolidated its relationship with the mountains and, in 1978, Renato Anselmet created the winery that we all know and appreciate today. Anselmet harvests high quality grapes from its excellently exposed vineyards located between 600 and 900 metres above sea level. Traditional and autochthonous vines that are processed with passion and skill in the beautiful cellar of Villeneuve, in the province of Aosta, and then reach markets all over the world. Collecting, ça va sans dire, the most prestigious prizes and awards.
