Produced from selected grapes of old Nebbiolo vines, in the local selection "Picotendro" and of Fumin, native Valle d'Aosta vine, harvested at an advanced stage of maturation.
The VIEILLES VIGNES is the result of the local oenological tradition, when, in the best vintages, the winemakers reserved for a part of their grapes a maturation in a longer plant, for a late and particular vinification.
