Tasting Note

Deep red with ruby highlights, this superb Barolo has a clear-cut, intense nose with overtones of vanilla, spices, withered roses and underbrush. The palate is dry, but soft, full bodied, velvety and well balanced, and is engagingly complex throughout the lengthy finish. Showing great personality.

Winemaking

This Barolo is named after the village where the vineyards are located - part of which are owned by the company, while the others are of suppliers who traditionally sell their entire grape production to Fontanafredda. With an average production of 45hl per hectare the vineyard features on the medium to upper slopes with south-south-west exposures. Plantings occur on soils of Miocene-Helevatian origin with a content of limestone and grey marl alternating with sand. In the cellar the fermentation process is traditional, 7-10 days in stainless steel vats with a floating cap at a controlled temperature (30º-31ºC). The must then stays on the skins for a further 15 days to optimise the extraction of the polyphenolic substances and help start the subsequent malolactic fermentation. A long stay in large oak casks (70%) and barriques (30%) precedes bottling, and is followed by a further period of maturation which depends on the vintage, though it never lasts less than 6 months.

Press

  • Elegant complex floral and smoky aromas, sweet fruit palate with well integrated finely etched tannins and a long expressive finish.

    • Decanter World Wine Awards 2017
    • Silver Medal
  • A beautifully poised Barolo, soft and graceful, aromatic, with wafts of red cherry , rosehip syrup, dried citrus peel and clove. A very autumnal treat - terrific with truffles.

  • Almost dark ruby and still quite youthful looking. Savoury sweet with clinging tannins and succulent strawberry fruit on the finish. Still young but already delicious.
