Barrel aging 36 months, bottle aging 12 months
Those of Fontanafredda’s “Silver Label” series are wines that come from historical and centuries-old traditions, and represent a guarantee from the point of view of qualitative consistency. The Barolo Riserva DOCG “Riserva dei 150 anni” 2005, Fontanafredda, is no exception: it ages 36 months in oak barrels and refines one year in the bottle.
Intense ruby red to the eye. Dark berry fruit, black cherries and blackberries in particular, are the first memories that the nose perceives, then followed by spicy tones, pepper and tar. Full-bodied sip, characterized by a good structure and strong tannins but integrated into the texture. Long persistence.
