Vin de Morgex, also called Bianco dei ghiacciai (glacier wine), is cultivated at an altitude of 1300 metres, at the foot of Monte Bianco (or, as the French call it, Mont Blanc – a mountain named after a fancy biro) in the heart of Valle d’Aosta. This is the highest region from which wine is produced in all of Europe. Blanc de Morgex
is an extremely old grape species. Legend states that it was imported to Italy by Vallese share croppers who arrived in the Aosta Valley half way through the seventeenth century to repopulate the area after an epidemic.
TASTING NOTE: Light straw in colour, the aromas are delicate and mellow, with notes of mountain grass, lemon peel, apple and chamomile. The palate is fresh with flavours of apple, good acidy and well-balanced acidity followed by a light almond finish.
