This is exceptional. IT IS THE RISERVA SPECIALE. Pure, lush, ripe fruit with soft edges and an enveloping nose. All kinds of deep fruit, sandalwood, leather, sweet cherry. The midpalate is fruit forward, developed and sophisticated. Intense and long. There are lots of secondary notes in the palate and a fading color but the resolved fruit pulls it all together. It’s all about the quality of this bottle, and this is immaculate. A real find and absolutely stunning wine

1964. Great nose, mature red fruit, licorice, bacon fat, brown sugar, hint of hoisin. Elegant on the palate, lively sweet fruit, finishes with some tannin grip. Great expression. #fontanafredda

Gorgeous Nebbiolo color with a hint of orange. Nose of rose petals, anise, tar. Beautifully balanced, silky smooth with vibrant fruit, well integrated tannins and long, spicy finish. Excellent Barolo drinking very well.

Heavy dose of chocolate, fig and dried cherries on the nose. Relaxed tannins, and subtle but lasting finish. Structure is teetering, possibly at its prime, or just past. Excellent with a hearty pasta dish

Fontanafreda La Rosa 2001. Cerrado en el inicio a pesar del decantado. Nariz fragante, carnoso en boca. Le faltan unos años
