"This Torrette is what Anthony and I like to refer to as a “border” wine—wines made in regions that are close to international borders and therefore take influence from the country next door as well as their “official” one. If you look at a map of Valle d’Aosta, you’ll see more village names in French than Italian, like Saint-Pierre, where Château Feuillet is located. And, to make a sweeping generalization, this wine even tastes more French than Italian! The dried flowers and peppery nose are reminiscent of Saint-Joseph, and there’s a bright gulpable fruitiness, not unlike that of a young Côte de Brouilly." —Clark Z. Terry
