Cave des Onze Communes 2017 Cornalin, Aosta Valley

$14.39 (FWGS) 88 Points (WSoP) Sometimes life calls for a crazy wine from Italy’s smallest wine region, right smack on the Swiss border. Aosta is a mountain region, and this is clearly a mountain wine. Wet, uncured leather, fresh crunchy fruit, a splash of cola, and tarragon. This is an odd little wine but very fun and unpredictable. This goes surprisingly well with a chili dog. It will also go extremely well with a charcuterie board or foie gras.
