La Kiuva Rosé de Vallée

La Kiuva Rosé de Vallée NV

Aosta Valley, ItalyLa Kiuva is a tiny co-op in the Vallée d'Aoste, and Arnad is a small village in the DOC. This dayglo Coho salmon hued rosé is a blend of nebbiolo, gros vien and neyret from 380 – 500 m and sandy soils. After a 12-hour maceration, this saignée method rose completes fermentation before six months in stainless steel tank and a 2 month stint in the bottle before release. Gushes of watery and youthful raspberry, strawberry, red currant on a medium, bright palate, ending with an appropriately bitter, salty rasp. Cured meats, salty alpine cheeses, lardon-laced salads would welcome this wine. Not overly complex, nor does it need / pretend to be. It's ideal just as it is.Tasted: 26 April 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: AB 14.50 private wine shops Producer: La Kiuva Società CooperativaDistributors: Crush Imports
