Notes From Vinity Wine Company:

"Vini Estremi (exteme wine) is harvested from Cave Mont Blanc’s highest vineyards at 1200 meters; among the highest in all Europe. It is made from the Prié Blanc varietal. Prie Blanc has been used in Aosta wines since at least the 17th Century. It thrives in altitude – as high as 3900ft (1200m) above sea level. It also buds late, avoiding spring frosts, and ripens early. The phylloxera louse does not thrive in the sandy, gravelly soils at this altitude which means that Prie Blanc – unlike almost every other Vitis vinifera variety in Europe – is ungrafted. Vines are planted on their original rootstocks.

Tasting notes: Fresh with delicate, but precise aromas, and concentrated, ripe, fruit flavors – white stone fruit, pineapple, white flowers, lemon peel and flint with a “granite” sensation. Brisk and refreshing with clear mineral hints throughout. A laser beam of acidity that awakens the taste buds and a bright, clean finish with hints of bitter almond, and an inviting finish."
