Grosjean, Cornalin "Vigne Rovettaz", 2019

Red Wine from Valle d'Aosta, Italy
$26.99
Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.

The Grosjean family has been farming the Valle d'Aosta since it was French territory, but it was only in the 1960s that Dauphin Grosjean (can you get more French with a name like that?) decided to turn the family's house wine, for family consumption, into a career. He began in earnest in 1969, and since 1975 only sustainable and organic farming practices have been used.


This Cornalin is spicy and savory, veering on meaty; this intensity is balanced by its elegant fruit, bright and cheery cherry with a hint of licorice and violets on the finish.

What Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

Cornalin Vigne Rovettaz: First produced in the 2005 vintage, the wine from this local grape variety is subtly herbaceous with dominant notes of red cherry fruit; full bodied and lively, the Cornalin from Grosjean has the potential to be a serious, long-lived wine. Biodynamic Certified.
