Fontanafredda Barolo DOCG

$36.60

Nebbiolo, the finest grape in Italy's Piedmont region, is what gives us Barolo, Savour aromas and flavours of red fruit, floral tones, berry, plum and touch of licorice. Extra-dry with balanced acidity, firm tannic backbone, and lovely fruit flavours that linger on the finish. Serve with game meats and mushroom risotto.

The result of long aging, thanks above all to the natural qualities of this product, takes the form of a wine rich in structure, full and robust, able to resist well over the years. In the glass, Barolo is a fascinating wine from its color, ruby ​​red with garnet reflections which, over time, become orange. The scent is clear and intense, broad, with typically hints of withered flowers, spices, dry leaves and undergrowth.

Vinification the fermentation is traditional, carried out for an average of 8-10 days in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature (30-31 °C) with a floating cap and frequent pumping over of the must. The must is then left on the skins for several days to optimize the extraction of the polyphenolic substances and to help the malolactic fermentation get underway.
