Fontanafredda Marne Brune Nebbiolo d'Alba DOC 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Nebbiolo Marne Brune stands out for its fragrance, which is already evident in its ruby-red colour of varying intensity (depending on the vintage), and is confirmed on the nose by bouquets of flowers and wild fruit, and on the palate by its strong personality and dry, nicely almond-like taste. This is well suited to complex fine dishes where red meats are the focus of the dish. It is also suited to seasoned cheese and truffles. Drinks well on release but will age for 7-8 years in the bottle, stored in cool, dark surroundings.
