Cornalin is an indigenous grape that was once quite widespread in the region, but it was abandoned during the phylloxera outbreak, thus risking extinction. Less than a decade ago a few wineries that believed in this vine’s potential started to reevaluate it, and managed to create outstanding wines.
Among the wineries that have always believed in this great Valle d’Aosta indigenous grape is “La Source”, and this wine is the epitome of the studies carried out by the winery during the years. You will find a very intense nose, complemented by notes of red berries with flowery and spicy hints. You will be delighted by its harmonic, agile and pleasant palate.
