Tasting notes

An expertly crafted, attractive Riserva at its peak, that should hold well for several years. The ruby colour fading to onion skin is a sign of its 11-year age. Enticing tertiary aromas define the nose, with mingled notes of wild mushroom, moss, and dried fruit. Rich and silky on the palate, with great balance and generous fruit that lifts the finish nicely. A very fine Barolo that is ready to drink. Decant 30 minutes before serving.

Producer

FONTANAFREDDA SRL.

Vinification and aging

The fermentation is traditional: medium-long (15 days) in stainless steel vats with a floating cap at a controlled temperature (30-31° C). The must then stays in contact with the skins for further 15 days to optimize the extraction of the polyphenolic substances and help start the subsequent malolactic fermentation. Ageing: one year in barriques from Allier and two year in oak casks still from Allier (2000 lt). After a soft clarifi cation, the wine is bottled for a further period of maturation in the bottle, the lenght depends from the characteristics of the vintages, but never less than 12 months. Shelf-life: The wine will reach its peak 6-8 years after the harvest, but its life can vary considerably depending on the vintage.

Terroir

Ideal with big red meat dishes and medium or mature cheeses, it can also make for pleasant after-dinner company.
