Tasting Notes: To most connoisseurs this tiny region in Italia is merely an interesting afterthought for wine; to say it is remote is an understatement. Luckily, few ever discover this zone, as there are less than 385 hectares of vines (800 acres) in the whole D.O.C.! Valle d’Aosta’s most important white varietals are Müller Thurgau and Pinot Gris; Anselmet’s Müller Thurgau is unique, with a remarkable, fresh herbal presence on the nose. Its bouquet includes plantain, lemon pith, and sweet thyme, which emanate in layers.
