From: Valle d'Aoste, North-West Italy
Varietal: 80% Petit Rouge, with Vien de Nus, Doucet, Furmin, and Mayolet
The vineyard sites for the grapes that went into this wine sit at an altitude of 550-650 meters above sea level, draping down the terraced hillside. The wine ages in both stainless steel and oak casks.
Tasting Notes: Grosjean’s Torrette, a traditional local blend anchored by the indigenous Petit Rouge cultivar, is charming and delicious in its youth but takes on more weight and gravitas with some bottle age. Buoyed by high acidity and snappy red fruit, the wine is balanced by notes of crushed rocks and earth that make it a perfect pairing for the traditional charcuterie and soups of the Val d’Aoste.
Pairing: Velvety and light wines like this perfectly match local specialties from the Aosta Valley, including charcuterie, cheese, white meat, and stews like Sorca (stew of green beans, bacon, and potatoes), Zuppa d’aosta (italian cabbage soup), Alpine onion soup (like French onion soup, yumm), Zuppa alla Valpellinese, Zuppetta di Cogne, Polenta Concia, Carbonara, Crema di Cogne.
