Why we love it
Torrette is a DOC appellation from Aosta Valley made with Petit rouge (at least 70%) and other red grape varieties all native to Aosta Valley and can be called “superiore” if they age for at least 8 months.
This Torrette "superiore" is the signature wine of the winery. Like for the Torrette, this wine is made with the best, selected hand harvested grapes and has a rich and complex, spicy nose with hints of prunes.
In the mouth this red wine is full, lively with strawberry jams, prunes and a long finish.
The artisan who made it
A group of young winemakers decided to work together and this is how the La Source winery was born, with Stefano as its soul. Born to a wine expert, Stefano decided to follow in his father’s footsteps, after having worked his way through Italy, and in 2005, came back to his village to take the reins of the winery and its six hectares of vineyards where they produce wines such as Torrette, Chardonnay and Gamay. The region of Valle d’Aosta is famed for its mountains and the wine production is very small and limited but regardless of the limitations, its wines have characteristics that cannot be found anywhere else and they are definitely worth trying.
