Summary: Fontanafredda was established in 1858 and in 1866 they purchased the first Barolo vineyard. Today the vineyard resource across the Langhe spans some of the great sites and most noble varieties. As well as experimenting with alternate varieties and styles for the region. The wines are destined to be fruitful and clean due to minimal handling, larger format oak and fruit form premium vineyards.
2018 Vintage: While the previous year was one of the worst on record with yields down, the growers of Piedmont were pleased to declare 2018 a miracle vintage. Although fluctuating weather patterns tested growers and vignerons through the year including spring frosts and early summer rains it became stable towards the end of summer ensuring a solid harvest.
Winemaking: The fruit for this wine is a blend of two vineyards, picked at optimum ripeness on separate days. The two parcels were fermented separately before being blended and matured for 3 months in tank on minimal lees to add subtleness and softness to the palate. The wine was then bottled and released shortly afterward.
Tasting Note: A lifted and aromatic wine showing ripe pear and golden delicious apple with clove and little pepper spice. A fresh fragrant wine that is both mouth-filling in intensity and fresh. Natural acidity pulls the wine long in the finish and makes it a wonderful partner to many cuisines, particularly creamy-based pasta dishes.
