Barolo ‘Fontanin’ Azienda Agricola Ettore Fontana 2009
Barolo ‘Fontanin’: 100% Nebbiolo from Castiglione Falletto. Altitude 300-350m. Handpicked. Rigorous selection. Temperature-controlled fermentation, with frequent délestages and punch downs. Three years in large Slavonian oak ‘botte’ (foudres), followed by 24 months in bottle prior to release.
Refined and fragrant with tons of cherries, sweet spice and strawberries, vibrant acidity with complements the slightly chewy tannins. The red berries linger on the palate enticingly making this an excellent expression of the Barolo DOCG.
Grape: 100% Nebbiolo
