Danilo Thomain L'Enfer d'Arvier 2014

$38.00

The vineyards of the Enfer d’Arvier appellation are located in Valle d'Aosta, northern Italy. The site resembles an amphitheater, resting on steep slopes, an area that receives ample sun. The form of this “bowl” of vineyards effectively concentrates the heat of the sun, hence the “hell of Arvier” moniker. Danilo Thomain is the only independent winemaker producing wines in this tiny appellation. This is made from Petit Rouge grape and vinified in barrel. It is intriguing by the fact that it is a rustic wine, balanced by a burst of alpine-berry, minerality and freshness.
