Details for Maison Anselmet Torrette Supérieur 2017
Bottle size and vintage
Torrette Supérieur is one of the Aosta Valley's finest native reds. This is all thanks to the character of the Petit Rouge, a traditional valley variety that has now become very well known, and the craftsmanship of Giorgio Anselmet, a real reference point for this region's viticulture and an example to follow due to the balanced use he makes of thoroughly modern technology and the oldest traditions.
Along with the Petit Rouge, Maison Anselmet Torrette Supérieur also possesses in its coupage a percentage of the Fumin variety, which brings sinew to the blend, and of Cornalin, another of the region's indigenous varieties, now in the process of recuperation. After its vinification in steel, the wine undergoes ageing in barrel (only 5% of them new).
As an example of the result, this 2014 vintage has received a rating of 91/100 in the Wine Spectator. A wine with garnet glints that reveals on the nose the typical fruity and violet aromas together with other more profound and evolved notes of cinnamon, cloves, incense, liquorice... On the palate, there's an emphasis on spiciness, showing a rich exuberance and perfect balance between the enveloping smoothness resulting from its stay in barrel and the characteristic mineral freshness of the Aosta Valley.
