I try my first bottle of Fumin from Valle d’Aosta


The 2014 Chateau Feuillet, Fumin, Valle d’Aosta is produced from relatively young vines grown in Valle d’Aosta located in the north-west corner of Italy.  As a point of reference Mont Blanc is on the French side of the border.  It appears there is not a large volume of Fumin based wines released.  I certainly had not tasted one before.  This bottle offers a nice balance between green pepper, tangy red fruit, and a mineral finish.  The later evoking the granite bedrock the vineyard is planted over.  For the curious types you can pick up a bottle at MacArthur Beverages.

2014 Chateau Feuillet, Fumin, Valle d’Aosta – $28
Imported by Kermit Lynch.  This wine is a blend of 90% Fumin and 10% Syrah which was fermented in stainless steel then aged for 3-6 months in French oak barrels.  Alcohol 13%.  There are green pepper infused flavors of tangy red fruit which has both body and weight.  The fresh acidity moves the wine towards a slightly perfumed and mineral finish.  The wine is certainly fresh and salivating.  *** Now – 2020.
