Fontanafredda is located in the heart of the Langhe and has a winemaking history dating back to 1878. A truly unique estate that is a joy to visit, including a Michelin star restaurant, hotel and truffle forest, Fontanafredda is a joy to visit. The estate stretches over 250 acres of hilly terrain in the villages of Serralunga d’Alba, Barolo and Diano d’Alba in the centre of Piedmont. The vineyards lie on mostly evenly-contoured hillsides and rounded ridges at an altitude of between 200 – 400 metres.
Classic liquorice and roses, earthy and spicy, minor level of wood showing. It’s fine and kind of svelte, tarry and lively at once, with orange and juicy cherry flavour, fine grained tannin, and solid length. Much to like here.
