Availability:Out of stock

Producer Profile

From the foothills of the North West Italian Alps, with vineyards set into steep slopes, La Crotta has the advantage of great growing conditions. The vineyards are located at a fairly high altitude, ranging from 500 to 850m, and enjoy a special microclimate with little rainfall and a good diurnal temperature range. The delicate grapes like Petit Arvine, Fumin and Gamay thrive here, resulting in enticing wines with a lightness of touch and minerality.


The Gamay grapes are from South-east, south-west and north-east facing vineyards in the municipalities of Nus, Quart, Chambave, Verrayes, Saint Denis, Chatillon, Saint Vincent at 450/680 metres above sea level. Soils are Moranic, loose, sandy medium sloped and trained Guyot and Goblet.


Pre fermentative cold soak then fermentation in stainless steel at 25° C, with maceration for 10 – 12 days followed by 6 months aging in steel.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment.

Tasting Note

Ruby red with a dainty, yet intense and persistent floral and fruity aroma of violet and strawberry. The wine is dry, mellow, and pleasantly fresh with elegant tannins and a lovely fruity finish.

Food Matching

Pairs well with salami, cold cut meats, and meaty soups.
