Tasting Note:
Blood red with ruby highlights, it 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.
Winemaking:
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.
Vineyard :
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.
Food matching:
Ideal with big red meat dishes and medium mature cheeses, try a
wild boar and mushroom risotto for example.
