This Cornalin red wine is produced in the Aosta Valley by the Rosset Vineyards. Dry and velvety, it is perfect to be served with barbecues.
A family tradition that tells of a strong bond with the earth, a natural predisposition for farming. This is why, in 2001, the Rosset family decided to turn the land they owned in the Senin Saint-Christophe locality in the Italian Alps into vineyards. The first plants introduced in this three acre plot were cuttings of Chardonnay, followed shortly thereafter by Cornalin and Syrah.
In 2005 the first ,Rosset Vineyards", Chardonnay was bottled, followed soon after by two fine reds: Syrah and Cornalin.
Today, Nicola Rosset continues the family tradition by combining research and rediscovery of autochthonous grapevines with a regional interpretation of valuable international varieties.
