Torrette Superieur Valle d'Aosta DOC 2020 - Maison Anselmet

On the label of this wine, which is very elegant by the way, we can read: Vallée d'Aoste Torrette Superieur élevé en fût de chêneen, that is, aged in oak barrels. It is not difficult to imagine, therefore, what kind of wine it is. It is made from a blend of three different grape varieties. Petit Rouge for 70%, then Fumin for 25% and Cornalin for the remaining 5%. Three vines that do well in the Aosta Valley because they are not afraid of its cool climate but require excellent exposure to absorb all they can from the sun that shines during the day. The grapes used for the production of this Torrette Sup. come from four different parcels located in the communes of Saint Pierre, Villeneuve, Sarre and Charvensode. We are well over 700 metres above sea level and in some cases the vineyards even touch 900 meters. To the limits of Italian viticulture. Matured in exhausted barriques for 12 months, this red wine appears in the glass in a beautiful, dense ruby colour, with still purple hues that reveal its young character. The nose reveals intense aromas of spice, blackberry, jam and underbrush. In the mouth, however, it is well-structured and rewarding. There are clear notes of vanilla and incense that accompany herbaceous sensations. The tannin is there and you can feel it but it does not disturb at all since it is well ripe and polished. The finish is also long and pleasant, leaving a pleasantly fruity note in the mouth.

It takes a certain amount of heroism to decide to make wine in the Aosta Valley. And of course a touch of madness. Qualities that are certainly not lacking in the Anselmet household, which has been working in this field since ancient times. It seems, in fact, that the first traces of an Anselmet engaged among the vineyards 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 gave life to the winery that we all know and appreciate today. From its excellently exposed vineyards located between 600 and 900 metres above sea level, Anselmet harvests high quality grapes. Traditional and autochthonous vines that are worked with passion and competence in the beautiful cellar of Villeneuve, in the province of Aosta, to then reach markets all over the world. Collecting, it goes without saying, the most prestigious awards and recognition.
