Description of the product
A wine produced in the Valsusa Alpine Valley, from the typical “AVANA'” vine, which, thanks to the area’s Mediterranean climate, can be grown at an altitude of approx. 1000m above sea level. The particular microclimate condition, the excellent south exposure and the terracings with dry stonewalls, help the Avanà vine reaching the best level of maturation.
The wine has a ruby red colour, with some orange hues; it has a good structure and excellent floral and fruity scents – depending on blackberries and raspberries’ vintage. To be drunk young and fresh, this wine is suitable for aperitifs or served with pasta or white meat dishes.

The vineyards are located in a natural environment which, thanks to its favourable position sheltered from the winds, is perfectly suitable for viticulture. From a recent research, it could be seen that the vineyards limited to Chiomonte’s municipality, are the highest in Italian Piedmont region, ranging from altitudes of 750m to 850 meters above sea level.
In regard to farming, vineyards have been partly re-planted, in order to facilitate mechanization and to better manage the individual varieties of grapes’ growth.
Part of the vineyards have been placed on terraces built with dry stonewalls, while the rest has been positioned at lower altitudes.
In 2007, in collaboration with Valle Susa’s Mountain Community, an old vineyard was recovered, aiming at testing whether high altitude cultivation at 1000m could have given appreciable results. The first harvest was in 2012, and the vines chosen were the autochthonous Avanà and Bicuet red grapes’ varieties. To present day, the vineyard has been used for ice wine’s production.
