Petite ArvineChatel ArgentVallée d'Aoste DOC
This selection of the Petite Arvine variety is grown in a cool area, close to the head of the valley. It therefore expresses important mineral and fresh notes.
The Petite Arvine of this range is intended to reflect the cool climate of the area of production and its north facing aspect.
It ages for 6 months in stainless steel vats.
It is ready to apreciate at a young stage. It presents a pale, straw colour, intense floral aroma and citrus scents. The genuine flavour of the variety is pronounced in this single varietal Valle d’Aosta Petite Arvine.
