La Kiuva, Arnad Montjovet, Valée d'Aosta, Italy 2018

Vallée d'Aosta is Italy's smallest wine region, but produces wonderfully alpine wines. The DOC of Arnad-Montjovet is named for two small villages in the Vallee d'Aoste where the main grape grown is Picotendro, the local clone of Nebbiolo. These wines are light & pretty with slightly gripping tannins.

Pairing: Any mushroom dish, a medium-intensity cheese like Fontina from the Val d’Aosta.

Grapes: 75% Nebbiolo and a range of the local grapes including Gros Vien, Neyret, Cornalin and Fumin

Soil: Alkaline/sandy Soil 

La Kiuva is committed to giving value to the terroir and the indigenous grape variety (Nebbiolo, known as Picotendro). Members were encouraged to take over old, abandoned vineyards in the best areas in order to produce authentic and sustainable wines.  All vineyard work is done by hand because the steep slopes are inaccessible to machinery.
