Barolo di Serralunga d’Alba DOCG Fontanafredda 2013
The historic estate of Fontanafredda conceals one or two little secrets – not least the hunting lodge to which its origins can be traced back to 1878.
Blood red with ruby highlights, it has a clear-cut, intense nose with overtones of vanilla, spices, withered roses and underbrush. The palate is dry, but soft, full bodied, velvety and well balanced, and is engagingly complex throughout the lengthy finish.
FOOD MATCHING NOTE
Ideal with big red meat dishes and medium mature cheeses, try a wild boar and mushroom risotto for example.
