Tasting notes

The 35-year-old Nebbiolo vines of Vigna Lazzarito are situated in a prime location on one of the best vineyard plots of the Serralunga d’Alba. The 2001 cuvée hails from a superb vintage which, after 19 years, is ably displaying the majesty of Piedmont’s greatest wines. Intense ruby colour with just the slightest hint of garnet. The richness and complexity of this distinguished Barolo is immediately evident on the nose. The palate offers an abundant, weighty, highly concentrated expression, with a texture that combines power and finesse. The finish is so long and layered that all one can say is WOW!

FONTANAFREDDA SRL.

Vinification and aging

Ageing begins in barrels made of oak from Allier, 50% of which are new. The wine stays in the barrels for around 12 months, and is then racked into medium-small oak casks holding 2000 and 3000 litres to continue maturing for another year.
