A rich, round style, boasting cherry, berry, cedar and licorice flavors. Packed with sweet fruit, this is dense, with dusty tannins clinging to the long finish. Best from 2018 through 2030.
Bright and aromatic with fresh flowers, dried berry and citrus character. Full body, firm tannins and a racy and beautiful finish. So much going on here. Why wait? Drink now or hold.
Rose, violet, red berry, cake spice and aniseed are some of the aromas you'll find on this delicious Barolo. On the balanced palate, notes of tobacco, licorice, clove and dried herb accent the juicy cherry-berry core. Ripe, firm tannins and fresh acidity provide structure.
The 2011 Barolo Serralunga d'Alba is a soft and luscious expression with bold tones of dark fruit and dried cherry. The heavy soils of the vineyard have conspired with the warm summer temperatures to produce an opulent and immediate interpretation of Nebbiolo. This wine is all about upfront likability and first impressions. It delivers its entire bounty by the time you take your first sip. It leaves little to the imagination. For this reason, it makes a great option for near-term consumption.
The history of Fontanafredda is a noble one. It began in 1858, when Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of Italy, purchased the Fontanafredda estate -a former hunting preserve- as a country home. Soon thereafter, he began to produce fine red wines from indigenous grape varieties dolcetto, barbera and nebbiolo. In 1878 King Vittorio II died and his firstborn son, Count Emanuele Alberto di Mirafiori, inherited Fontanafredda. Count Mirafiori created the commercial business of wine from the estate and released the estate's first nebbiolo labeled as Barolo with the vintage 1878. Beginning in 1932, the estate transferred to Monte dei Paschi di Siena, the world's oldest bank, who retained ownership of Fontanafredda for 76 years.
