Donnas Valle d'Aosta Classico
If you enjoy Barolo but are searching for more minerals and elegance than tar and muscle, then look up a 1000 foot mountain ridge to Alpine wine from the Italian-French region of Valle dÕAoste. This wine is predominantly Nebbiolo (the grape that makes Barolo) with 10% Freisa. I love how this wine shows that the Nebbiolo grape doesnÕt have to be chewed. It doesnÕt have to be so dry and tannic that itÕs hard to enjoy. You get all of the flavor of amazing quality Barolos and Barbarescos without the heft and need to wait years to enjoy. The 10% addition of Freisa adds a wonderful sour-juicy element that makes the wine highly drinkable. Aged in large Slovanian oak barrels for 24 months.
