Fontanafredda Barolo Vigna la Rosa 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

The wild roses that bloom on the house walls have given their name to this vineyard, which is about 250 metres above sea level in the area of Serralunga d'Alba. The Vigna La Rosa Barolo is harmonious, well-rounded and elegant. Its very fine and delicate nose is reminiscent of faded roses and, with the ageing process, it tends to acquire a pronounced earthy style but with a velvety sort of taste. This is ideal with rich red meats and medium mature cheeses as a perfect after dinner wine.
