Fumin is an extremely unusual wine, best expressing the features of the grapes of origin (and of their mountainous land).
The colour is a deep rubin with a crimson glare that livens it up. On the nose, this wine shows intense fruit fragrances recalling ripe blackberry and blackcurrant, slightly refreshed by a vegetal touch and immediately resumed by spicy notes, with charming nuances of scorched wood. The palate reveals all the sweetness of ripe and fleshy fruits, supplemented by the spicier notes already perceived by smell. The tannins are quite thick and the finish is prolonged, with a tone of sapidity.
Best to be enjoyed with
A special wine, different from all the others; accordingly, it should be served to flamboyant dining companions. It matches perfectly with robust fare: for instance, red meat or feathered game; but smoked cheeses and well-seasoned cured meat will also fit with this wine.
The Winery: Grosjean
The Grosjean winery is situated between the villages of Quart and Saint Christophe, in the region of Vallée D'Aoste, in the Alps. In 1969, the founder started to bottle his own wine: this trade soon expanded from three thousand square metres to the current ten hectares planted with vineyards.
