Valle d'Aosta Fumin 2020

A bit of a different profile from prior vintages. Much more plush, juicy and fruit forward. (Warmer/riper vintage?) Ruby red color with a purple rim. More fruit forward aromas and flavors of dark cherry, black raspberry, vanilla, fresh herbs, tobacco, graphite and a slight hint of pine needles. Touch of black licorice on the long and lingering finish. Soft tannins. Very deep and complex. Consistently great mountain red. — 7 months ago

Valle d'Aosta Pinot Nero 2020

Wonderful high elevation Pinot. Light ruby in color. Aromas of wild red berries and brambly herbs. More strawberry on the palate with additional notes of black tea, those ever present fresh herbs and a nice mineral touch on the finish. Medium bodied and bright. Beautiful velvety structure. Good stuff. Thank you for sharing, Ron B! — 7 months ago

Sommer Valle d'Aosta Nebbiolo 2016

Ruby with aromas of fresh crushed red berry fruits, floral and slight spicy notes. On the palate black cherry and blackberry flavors, well balanced with acidity and fine soft tannins. The finish is long, ending with fruit, cedar and mocha notes. Nice, will age well. — 3 years ago

Vin de la Sabla Vino Rosso Red Blend

I might argue that this is the best supermarket wine sold in northern Italy. Rustic and fresh and versatile. — 4 years ago

Coteau La Tour Syrah 2017

100% Valle d’Aosta Syrah. Bright ruby color with a garnet rim. Aromas and flavors of cherry, bramble berries, black pepper, baking spices and black licorice. Bright and complex. Relatively soft texture and tannin for a Syrah but the high elevation vineyards should explain that. Kind of “Syrah-lite,” but in a good way. Handles a bit of a chill. Good red choice in the Summer months. Thank you for sharing, Ron B! — 7 months ago

Revei Valle d'Aosta Pinot Nero 2017

B:Big sweaty funk upon opening. Wet wool, tree bark, decomposing forest, wet earth. Bog.
P: Cherry pits, bit of chewiness, nice tannins, chocolate, cherry liqueur, minerals, ( like dark flint) graphite.
Great Italian alpine wine.
