Torrette Valle d'Aosta DOC
Torrette Valle d'Aosta DOC is the most produced red wine of the region and its production area is the largest of the DOC classification in the region. This version proposed by La Source winery is obtained from 90% Petit Rouge and 10% Vien de Nus grapes, grown in Saint-Pierre area. After de-stemming, the grapes are fermented at a controlled temperature of 26-28 °C. The must remains in contact with the skins for about 8-10 days, allowing the extraction of noble components from the skins thanks to frequent délestages. Racking takes place at the end of alcoholic fermentation. The malolactic fermentation is carried out completely in steel and the wine matures on the fine lees partly in steel and partly in wood, before concluding its refinement in the bottle for the following 6 months.
Vibrant red colour with violet undertones. Characteristic aromas of violet and red fruits, typical of the grape variety. In the mouth it is well-bodied, the taste is intense, well balanced, dry and very pleasant. We suggest serving it at 18 °C.
FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS
Torrette Valle d'Aosta DOC by La Souce is an ideal red wine for the whole meal. It pairs very well with red and white meat; it is excellent in combination with roasts and game, but also with cold cuts from Aosta Valley and aged cheese.
Chosen for you
La Source is a young winery founded in 2003 by the will of some young farmers and which is led with enthusiasm by Stefano Celi, an agronomist and a descendant of a family with a long winemaking tradition. The vineyards, partly owned and partly rented, are scattered in the municipalities of Quart, Aosta, Sarre, Aymavilles and Villeneuve, with a major portion on the bottom of the hill Towers in Saint-Pierre. Except in the case of syrah, conche in the area, and the chardonnay, the vineyards are quite young: a great potential for further growth in the future.
