217. 2015 PETITE ARVINE, Elio Ottin. Valle D'Aosta, ItalyOrganic
Alcohol Percentage: 14.5%
Area: Aosta Valley is a small wine region in the far norh west of Italy, literally in the foothills of the Alps, with a very Swiss feel. And Petite Arvine is better known in Switzerland, where it makes that country's most 'serious' dry whites.
This is from south facing vineyards at around 600m. The Ottin estate is just 6 hectares.
Old Bridge Rating: Full, but much more delicate than the 14.5% alcohol would imply.
Press Reviews: "This has lovely aromas of peaches, but you can also smell the wet stone minerality. A lovely waxy texture reveals white grapefruit and pepper, leading to refreshing saltiness on the finish. Nicely balanced despite relatively high alcohol". 90/100. Decanter Magazine, February 2017
