WineDiva's Review

Grown on hillside vines in Serralunga d'Alba in limestone, marl and sandy soils, this Nebbiolo was aged for one year in French barrique than a second year in larger French oak cask.
The 250-acre Fontanafredda is the largest contiguous wine estate in Langhe, located in the cru of Serralunga d'Alba, is also the largest certified organic winery in Piedmont.
Expect a velvety nose with cherry, old roses and dried strawberry, chocolate covered almond, nutmeg and moist earth. It has a mature but fresh palate that is silky but also has a firm structure. Flavours of strawberry tea, leather and pipe tobacco stand out; the finish is long and fresh.
