Fontanafredda Barbera Briccotondo

Region Monferrato,Italy
Grape Barbera
Style Red
Brand Fontanafredda

General information:

In the heart of the Langhe, a world of hills dating back to ancient times and a winery that can boast 155 years of history, made up of work, passion, respect for the land and culture of taste.

Variety: Barbera

Origin: Monferrato,Italy

Aging: the wine is aged partly in new barrels made of oak from Allier, and partly in large Slavonian oak casks. It stays in wood for around five months, and is bottled in late spring following light clearing using egg-white.

Vinification:
Alcohol: 13.5 % vol.

Colour: this is a ruby-red wine with purple highlights.

Aroma: The nose is packed with black fruit, especially blackberries and plums, with slight spicy overtones hinting at black pepper and cinnamon.

Palate: Sweet, soft tannins come together in a closely-woven texture that merges with the fruit, while a crisp freshness provides a long , tasty finish. This wine is at its best for 3-4 years following the harvest.

The estate’s noble pastis still evident at Fontanafredda today in the hunting lodge, hamlet, extensive cellars and vineyards, but it continues to innovate and experiment, perfecting what nature and history have handed down.

This is why, in the Langhe, where the landscape is marked by the vines and wines that have linked generations down the years, Fontanafredda continues to stand out as a point of reference: the expression of a wine culture that stems from the land and thevineyard, and matures through the work and creativity of men.
