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.
"This opens with aromas of scorched earth, leather, truffle and a floral note of iris. The palate shows the heat of the vintage, offering dried cherry, ground clove and a hint of game alongside taut tannins."
91/100 points, Kerin O’Keefe, WINE ENTHUSIAST, July 2021
Ideal with rich red meats and with medium or mature cheeses it is perfect as an after dinner wine. Will benefit from decanting.
