Petite Arvine is an indigenous vine from Valle d’Aosta. Its folk name is “glacier vine”, because it can withstand and acclimatize in the coldest and most inhospitable climates. Grown for centuries in Valle d’Aosta, it found in this region a perfect terroir, where it best expresses its characteristics, with vineyards that climb on the mountainsides at 600 to 900 meters.
The high altitude where the vineyards are grown creates big differences between daytime and night-time temperatures, which contribute to develop and intensify the grape’s aromatic profile. This vine lends itself to ageing, with interesting aroma and flavor evolutions.
Manual harvest of perfectly ripe and carefully selected grapes during the first ten days of October. Collection of whole grapes in cases, followed by soft pressing and cold static decantation. The alcoholic fermentation is carried out at 18°C in steel vats. The wine is shaken on the lees for a few months before being filtered and prepared for bottling.
Alcohol content: 12.5 % vol.
