Nadir Cuneaz 'Vin des Geants' MAGNUMTabula Rasa
From the same winemaker as our favorite Pinot Noir, 'Grandgosier.'
Varietals: Vien de Nus (which comprises the majority), Petit Rouge, and Vuillermin. Made entirely in steel, this is a classic Vallée d’Aoste lip-smacker, stuffed with juicy black cherries and crunchy plums. With electrifying acidity and a complexity-contributing edge of woodsmoke, this is perhaps the most delicious and complete wine Nadir has ever made
The Cuneaz family has a mere 0.5 hectares near the town of Gressan, reflecting a local mix of grape varieties, some of which were planted over 100 years ago. The ‘cellar’ is one of the rooms in their home, where a few small cuves and two barrels reside, and three wines are produced.
