Side note

the Fumin grape was saved from extinction by Aosta Valley vintners, when, in the 80s, they began planting new vineyards with this traditional variety. The grape is characterized by a complex color/flavor profile. Fumin is today considered a key grape in the reintroduction of traditional regional grapes into the winemaking process
