Barolo 2011 Serralunga D'Alba, Fontanafredda, Magnum, 1.5L
Magnum, 1.5 Liter

The story of Fontanafredda is a noble one. It began in 1858, when Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of Italy, purchased the estate (a former hunting preserve) in order to produce fine Barolo for his personal use. Today, Fontanafredda is the single largest contiguous estate in Piedmont with over 305 acres of land, including 210 acres of vineyards in Serralunga where this wine comes from. 100% Nebbiolo grapes are hand-harvested and fermented for 15 days in stainless steel vats with a floating cap at a controlled temperature. The must then stays in contact with the skins for a further 15 days to optimize the extraction. Aged one year in barriques from Allier and one year in large oak casks from Allier, followed by no less than 12 months of maturation in bottle. This wine is an outstanding release from the 2011 vintage which received high praise including three 93 point score. One of those was from Wine Enthusiast Magazine who said "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."
