1997 Barolo Vigna La Rosa Fontanafredda

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 93.0 points



The opaque plum-colored 1997 Barolo La Rosa reveals the influence of toasty new oak in its fabulously pure, concentrated nose, which represents the essence of melted licorice, blackberries, and assorted black fruits. As the wine sits in the glass, scents of toast, smoke, leather, tar, and fennel emerge. Full-bodied, massively concentrated, powerful, and dense, it requires 3-5 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2022. Wine Advocate.June, 2001

The 85 hectares of Fontanafredda wine vineyards are situated on hillsides in the Piedmont region of Italy. They are planted with predominantly the traditional nebbiolo, barbera, dolcetto and moscato. The estate produces sparkling as well as still wines. FINE+RARE lists a selection of their Barolo wines.
