Petit Rouge

This historic Valdostan variety is currently the most cultivated in Aosta Valley.

This historic Valdostan variety known by "valdotains" also as "Pitchou rodzo," the Petit rouge is currently the most cultivated in Aosta Valley, in the area between Saint-Vincent and Avise, on the right and on the left slope of the Dora Baltea, to altitudes approximately 750 meters above sea level.

Very mature grapes of the Petit rouge yield a wine of a violet-red color, beginning intense and tending to garnet with the evolution of the maturation.

This is the basic grape of many Aosta Valley DOC red wines including the Chambave by 70%, Enfer d'Arvier for 85%, Nus with 30% and Torrette with 70%.

It finds its best expression in Torrette and Enfer d'Arvier.
