Vinous Reverie Notes
"The “Vigne Tsancognein” Torrette (a blend of mostly Petit Rouge with some Fumin, Cornalin and Prié Rouge) is the ultimate après-ski wine. Uncork it by the fire after a day on the slopes and you’ll see what I mean: it’s sharp fruit tones and rustic secondary aromas reinvigorate the senses." ~ Kevin Day, Opening a Bottle
