Clear-cut, intense nose with overtones of vanilla, spices, withered roses and underbrush. The taste is dry, but soft, full-bodied, velvety and well balanced, and is very long-lasting.

Vineyard: The vineyards of Fontanafredda lie on mostly evenly-contoured, rounded hillsides at altitudes between 200 and 400 metres, in the municipal areas of Serralunga d’Alba, Diano d’Alba, Barolo and Murisengo.

Vinification: The fermentation is traditional: medium-long (15 days) in stainless steel vats with a floating cap at a controlled temperature (30-31° C). The must then stays in contact with the skins for further 15 days to optimise the extraction of the poly-phenolic substances and help start the subsequent malolactic fermentation.

Ageing: One year in barriques from Allier and two year in oak casks still from Allier (2000 lt). After a soft clarification, the wine is bottled for a further period of maturation in the bottle, the length depends from the characteristics of the vintages, but never less than 12 months.

Appearance: Garnet-red with ruby highlights that take on a slightly orange tone over time.

Bouquet: Clear-cut, intense nose with overtones of vanilla, spices, withered roses and underbrush.

Palate: The taste is dry, but soft, full-bodied, velvety and well balanced, and is very long-lasting.
