Barolo DOCG Vigna la Rosa 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Auge: Die Farbe ist rubinrot mit Granatreflexen; Nase: Das Bukett ist intensiv und angenehm, zeigt deutliche Noten von verblühter Rose, Veilchen, Tabak, Beeren, Gewürzen und leichter Vanille; Gaumen: Im Mund ist die Struktur der Tannine dicht: der Ansatz ist weich, fast samtig und explodiert dann in einer ausgeglichenen Fruchtigkeit und Säure; Finale: Der Abgang ist lang und reich an Würze

Fontanafredda is located in the heart of the Langhe, a world of hills dating backto very ancient times which has always been a prime growing area for great wines, particularly rich, powerful reds. Ourvineyards lie on mostly evenly-contoured hillsides and rounded ridges at an altitude of between 200 and 400 metres.

Vigna "La Rosa" Barolo 2007 - 92 points, Wine Spectator / Ripe, cherry and plum jam aromas lead off, with a saturated palate of sweet fruit tinged by tar and licorice. Firm tannins conclude the adventure.

La Rosa Barolo 2007 - 96 points, WineReviewOnline.com/ This Barolo comes from Fontanafredda’s La Rosa vineyard within the commune of Serralunga d’Alba.  It’s a denser, more robust and earthier version of their Barolo labeled Serralunga d’Alba.  Fabulously long and balanced, it’s a gorgeous wine with layers upon layers of excitement.  It has a “modern” patina without losing any of the traditional mixture of savory and fruit flavors found in top notch Barolo.   This young Barolo simultaneously bombards and caresses the palate.

La Rosa Barolo 2007 - 93 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Barolo La Rosa delivers bold, dark concentration with sweet spice tones of almond paste and vanilla cream backed by sharply focused aromas of red berry, cassis, plum and mocha. In the mouth, this beautiful Nebbiolo boasts a linear but long-lasting feel.

La Rosa Barolo 2008 - 95 points, Wine Spectator Insider/ Fine harmony and sweet cherry and berry flavors are the hallmarks of this rich Barolo. Licorice, spice and tobacco flavors add depth as it stays focused and persistent through the finish. The tannins are ripe and well-integrated.

La Rosa Barolo 2007 - 91 points, Wine Advocate/ The 2007 Barolo Vigna La Rosa is stylistically similar to the straight Barolo, but it has more textural depth and sheer body. Sweet, perfumed flowers, dark cherries and licorice are woven together in this graceful, suprisingly vinous Barolo.

La Rosa Barolo 2001 - 91 points, Wine Advocate/ The 2001 Barolo Vigna La Rosa emerges from the glass with sweet rose petals, spices and dried red cherries. It, too, has aged nicely...The 2001 is very pretty...
