2008 Di Barro Petit Rouge Vallée d'Aoste
Petit Rouge is the grape. A bit on the generec side of things, by the sound of it. But wait until you taste this lovely, light-bodied red. This grapes used to make this wine come two vineyards, Château Feuillet and Boné, located between 2,100 and 2,600 feet above sea level. This is Alpine country like none other. Silver blue lakes dot the region, and you can almost taste an Alpine lake in this cool, earthy wine. No oak, nothing to obscure the dark fruit, forest floor and toch of cola and smoke. Lovely with cheese.
