The Details

In a Nutshell

Piemonte couldn't be represented more clearly than in this stunning, balanced red from Fontanafredda.

Tasting Notes

A clear, ruby-red wine with violet highlights. Its vinous bouquet is fruity, very intense and rather attractive and persistent. Nicely dry, well-balanced and velvety, it has a light almondy aftertaste.

Grape Blend

Production Notes

Grapes are grown mainly around the town of Alba and in the villages of Treiso, La Morra and Neive.
Vineyards are well-exposed, mid-hillside plots on fairly compact calcareous soil.
Fermentation in stainless steel vats for 6-8 days at a temperature of 24-25° C, followed by the malolactic fermentation.
A short stay in steel precedes bottling, which is carried out in the spring following the harvest. The wine is released after a few months of ageing in the bottle.

Producer - Fontanafredda

Fontanafredda is an estate that covers more than 100 hectares in the heart of the Langhe, a hilly area in Piedmont, revered for its vines and winemaking tradition. The history of Fontanafredda goes back to 1878 and testimonies to the estate’s noble past remain intact today, the hunting lodge, the hamlet, the extensive cellar and the vineyards, however the winery continues to experiment and move with the times in perfecting what nature and history have handed down.
