Fontanafredda La Rosa Barolo
Description: Winemaker's Notes
#86 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013

The Fontanafredda Barolo La Rosa begins with ruby-red with garnet highlights in the glass. On the nose, the wine has delicate, though intense nose is complex, with clear-cut overtones of withered roses, violets, tobacco, underbrush, spices, and a slight touch of vanilla.On the palate, Dense, closely-woven tannins start out smooth, almost velvety, and then explode in the palate with fruit and nicely balanced freshness. Long flavorful finish.

It is excellent served with flavorful meat dishes and mature cheeses.

Critical Acclaim
WS 95pts
Wine Spectator - "Fine harmony and sweet cherry and berry flavors are the hallmarks of this rich Barolo. Licorice, spice and tobacco flavors add depth as it stays focused and persistent through the finish. The tannins are ripe and well-integrated. Best from 2015 through 2033."
