Harmonious and versatile red which is “Supérieur” under the sun
Vallée d’Aoste Torrette DOC is a harmonious red wine with a crisp, dry flavour whose qualities were already renowned in the last century. It is currently the most produced Valdostane wine and its production area is the largest among the DOC certified areas in the region, extending over eleven municipalities: Quart, Saint-Christophe, Aosta, Sarre, Saint-Pierre, Charvensod, Gressan, Jovencan, Aymavilles, Villenenuve and Introd.
Its discipline states that production must include a quantity in excess of 70% of Petit Rouge grapes, which can be blended with Pinot Noir, Gamay, Fumin, Vien de Nus, Dolcetto, Majolet or Prëmetta. Torrette is a full-bodied, red wine (12°-13°) which can be served throughout an entire meal. It is ideal served with meat, excellent with roasts and game, but also local sliced pork meat and mature cheese.
The Supérieur version, produced from the sunniest vineyards with a limited production per hectare, differs due to its greater concentration of grapes and more prolonged aging.
