Tasting notes

Nineteen years following its harvest, this bold red still displays all the elegance and finesse of its distinguished roots. Still youthful and full bodied despite subtle tertiary, autumnal and stone fruit undertones. The extensiveness and richness of ultra-ripe fruit on the palate unveils a lovely balance and long lingering finish. A great buy! Decant a maximum of 45 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.
