Barolo Fontanafredda 2017


Current stock: 9

Barolo, Fontanafredda, Barolo, Piemonte, Italy, 2017  

100% Nebbiolo with at least two years in large casks made of oak (from Slavonia and mid-France), followed by no less than twelve months in the bottle. 

This Barolo has an attractive ruby-red colour with garnet highlights which become orange with the passing of time. Its bouquet is clean, full and intense, with the wine's typical traces of withered flowers, dry leaves and underbrush. 

"Woodland berries, truffle, pipe tobacco and a whiff of violet shape the subtle, enticing nose. Elegantly structured and full-bodied, the generous palate doles out juicy Morello cherry, crushed raspberry and baking spice enveloped in tightly knit, refined tannins. A licorice note lingers on the close. It's already rather immediate but will offers years of enjoyment. Drink 2022-2029." 95/100 points, Wine Enthusiast, January 2021

An exceptional score for Fontanafredda's "entry level" wine!

Ideal with rich red meats and with medium or mature cheeses it is perfect as an after dinner wine. Will benefit from decanting.
