Torrette is a harmonic red wine, with a dry flavor, already appreciated during the last century. It is now the most widely produced wine in Valle d’Aosta and its production area is among the region’s widest DOC areas.
The superior version, obtained from the sunniest vineyards and with limited yields per hectare, differs from the basic version for a higher grape concentration and a more prolonged ageing.
Petit Rouge 90%, Fumin 10%
The grapes are de-stemmed, fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 26-28°C. Contact with the skins for 10-14 days, during which the skins’ noble components are extracted by délestage; racking takes place after post-fermentation maceration.
Malolactic fermentation is completely carried out in wood; the wine intended for ageing is kept in wood for approximately 7-8 months, then bottling is carried out to reach the taste-aroma balance, followed by a few months’ ageing in the bottle.
Alcohol content: 13 % vol.
Violet red tending to garnet color; intense bouquet, with hints of wild rose, almond, ripe red berries and spices; it has a good body, with pleasant tannins and a full and rewarding taste; it benefits from a good bottle ageing and its valuable features will remain intact for many years.
