Picotendro (local clone of Nebbiolo), Gros Vien, and Fumin
Light and ruby red color of moderate intensity. Fine, intense and vinous bouquet with sensations of red fruit and delicate spicy notes. Dry, smooth and harmonious taste, enriched by tannin notes with a slighty bitter finish.
La Kiuva is a tiny co-op in Pied de Ville, Vallée d’Aoste. It was created in 1975 and produced its first vintage in 1979. Today, it consists of just 60 growers who own a total of 25 hectares of vines (18 ha in DOC). Its total production is around 8000 cases. Most of the grower-members farm organically. Each grower tends to their small plot (not unlike Burgundy) while the co-operative’s agronomist oversees farming, ensuring the highest quality of viticulture is obtained. Organic
