Why we love it
Gamay is certainly not a native Italian grape, it is widely found on the other side of the Alps, in France, however, it is planted in the Aosta Valley and due to the altitude, the wine is very different from a French Gamay, not least for their freshness and longevity.
This, vegan friendly, Gamay wine made with hand picked grapes, has a rich, spicy nose, with plenty of red fruit, elegant. In the mouth it is full, round, velvety, fruity with a finish of cherry. This is another wine where the fermentation is done "sur Lies". Another extreme wine. Impressive!
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.
