White

Italy

Aosta Valley

Description

Founded in 1990, the Cave des Onze Communes includes 220 grower-members that farm nearly 150 acres across 11 municipalities in the Aosta Valley.

Tasting Notes: An aromatic wine with plenty of floral character (orange blossom, rosewater) over a backdrop of ripe, exotic fruit (lychee). Round, rich and well-balanced on the palate, with a long, finish.

Serve With: Excellent with spicy Asian cuisine (especially aromatic Thai curries, or Salmon Korma).
