2005 Fontanafredda La Villa Barolo


Piedmont, Italy

The nose brims with ripe fruit – especially plums and cherries - with hints of spices reminiscent of cinnamon and cloves, merging into a fine balance with toasted overtones of coffee and cocoa. The palate opens up providing a warm feeling of volume and body, with the fruit blending marvellously with the soft tannins and acidity, while its long finish is due above all to the great savouriness featured in a marked aftertaste of blackberry jam.
