Les Cretes Fumin 2018
The skies the limit with this intensely Italian Alpine wine. Think red Burgundy with Italian sunshine.
DOP Valle d’Aoste
What we say
Indigenous italian grape variety from the Aosta valley, from top producer Les Crêtes. For those who love a tannic and powerful red wine, to pair with a peppery dish or lamb.
What they say
Ruby with purple tints . On the palate, it expresses itself, with a lot of character, juicy and fragrant. Soft tannins and notes of vanilla, juniper, tobacco. Slowly closes on the palate with hints of liquorice. It goes well with cold cuts, fondues, mature cheeses, red meats and game.
