Lo Triolet Gamay Valle d'Aoste 2016
The Valle d’Aoste, in the extreme northwest of Italy, is tucked into the Alps and bordered by France and Switzerland. The Martin family runs the tiny Triolet winery as well as a small agriturismo (a farm-style resort) all at 2500 ft. above sea level! The vineyards are planted in sandy soil of morainic origin rich in minerals. The savory, fresh and elegant wines express the essence of the mountain terroir, and the wines’ aromatic complexity, derived from the extreme changes in night and day temperatures, is beguiling. Practicing Organic.
