Food accompaniments: salamis, fondue, matured cheese, red meat and game.

Trivia: the name Fumin comes from the smoky grey colour of its berries, rich in bloom. The Valdaostan ancestral variety does not have relatives on other production ranges. Traditionally combined with other varieties, it is today vinified purely in Valle d’Aosta. Les Cretes was the first Valdaostan company to produce it in pdo in 1993.Download PDF technical sheet Awards Ask information about this wine
