The wine

The area comprising the localities of La Salle and Morgex, in the Aosta Valley, is the only one in the whole of Europe to possess authentic crus at a height of 1,000 to 1,200 metres above sea level. The challenge of heroic viticulture here is added to an ancestral tradition which calls for the vines to be trained on pergolas and also thus enjoy better sun exposure. Subject to adverse weather conditions, including wind, snow and few hours of sunshine, the Prié Blanc variety succeeds in expressing itself to the absolute full in this location.

This variety adapts to the low temperatures and mineral soils found locally to offer very rich grapes even after the coolest summers and toughest harvests, with relatively early ripening that escapes the first frosts. It's not a coincidence then that the Morgex area is one of the very few in Italy capable of delivering in specific years some splendid Ice wines.

Rayon is one of this denomination's gems. Appearing a pale, delicate straw colour and with evocative herbaceous, citrus and mineral aromas, it's an ideal wine to accompany aperitifs and starters. After 5 months in steel tanks, it exhibits on the palate its freshness, but also a surprising richness and opulence considering the altitude it starts out from. It finishes with a lovely hint of almonds which inevitably leads on to a quick succession of sips...
