2005 Les Crete Torrette

SKU #1034067

Tucked into the northwestern corner of Italy, the vineyards of Valle d'Aosta are located on steep mountain slopes, situated 550-850 meters above street level. Surprisingly, the region's wine production is about 90 percent red, generally made from fumin or, like this Torrette, predominantly petite rouge. Bright, fruit-filled and a bit Beaujolais-like, this wine is fine and elegant with vibrant acidity, great for your favorite northern Italian meal.

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
