A rustic native Valdostan variety, cultivated in throughout the center of the Valley.
Interest in this variety is continuous increasing, following the recognition of the DOC. There are many new plantings on all the cultivation areas that extend from Saint-Vincent to Villeneuve involve especially the left slope of the Dora Baltea, at an altitude of approximately 600-650 meters. This is still rather widespread in the old vineyards of Aymavilles, often in association with the Petit Rouge.

This is a basic grape of the robust red Aosta Valley Fumin wine DOC and contributes to the production of other Aosta Valley DOC wines.

The mature grapes of Fumin alone can produce a long-lasting, rich and full-bodied red wine, destined to the refinement that is also well-matched with the valuable French oak (barrels) the reason why this old pearl of the local oenology was rediscovered and valued.

The wine is loaded with color, with strong malvaceae tones; the fragrance is broad, intense, slightly herbaceous, and enriched ripening; to the palate it has a dry, austere flavor of good acidity.

The wine of the Fumin does not lend itself to being consumed young, but must await refinement; it is best matured a few years after the harvest. The Fumin finds harmony matched with red meats, civet (rabbit stew) and game in general, as well as with long-curing cheeses.
