Barolo Serralunga Fontanafredda 93js 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"A rich, round style, boasting cherry, berry, cedar and licorice flavors. Packed with sweet fruit, this is dense, with dusty tannins clinging to the long finish...93" WS, Web Issue 2015 "Bright and aromatic with fresh flowers, dried berry and citrus character. Full body, firm tannins and a racy and beautiful finish. So much going on here. Why wait?...93" JS 09/15 "The 2011 Barolo Serralunga d'Alba is a soft and luscious expression with bold tones of dark fruit and dried cherry. The heavy soils of the vineyard have conspired with the warm summer temperatures to produce an opulent and immediate interpretation of Nebbiolo. This wine is all about upfront likability and first impressions. It delivers its entire bounty by the time you take your first sip. It leaves little to the imagination. For this reason, it makes a great option for near-term consumption...90" WA 06/15
