Known as Cornalin d’Aoste in Italy, despite the tenacious legends which insist on similarity with Ouriou, Humagne Rouge has no commonality with Ouriou, Humagne Blanche, or Valaisanne Cornalin. Grown exclusively in Valais nowadays, this domain has long been marginal. For two decades there has been a resurge in interest and its growing area is increasing year on year.
Slow maceration over 3 or 4 weeks allows the soft tannins to emerge which are responsable for the colour and structure of this red wine. Six to eight months vat ageing during which the second fermentation takes place rounds off the production of this speciality.
Violet – red
Spicy bouquet featuring pine and cinammon notes.
This powerful wine charged with wild touches develops aromas of dark fruits balanced by silky tannins.
Humagne Rouge goes wonderfully well with game, grilled meats, wild fowl and hard cheeses.
