Ample nose, with an intense bouquet featuring flowers, vanilla, lemon, lily of the valley and bitter apples.
Fontanafredda's revival under Oscar Farinetti looks assured and this sleeping beauty of the Langhe – its vineyards are surely among the finest in the area – is now on a clear upward trajectory.
It's a winery that combines this great history – Fontanafredda used to have its own bakery and school, and still preserves a great sense of community – with thoroughly modern production facilities for everything from Asti to Barolo.
Grapes: 100% Cortese
Region: Italy / Piemonte / Rovereto DOCG
Maker: Oscar Farinetti
Notes: Straw-yellow with greenish highlights, it has an ample nose, with an intense bouquet featuring flowers, vanilla, lemon, lily of the valley and bitter apples. Its nicely dry taste is full, well-balanced and elegant
Serve: At 10-12c it is excellent as an aperitif, or served with starters and fish and shellfish dishes. Its the perfect summer wine, but its gastronomic pairings know no seasonal limits.
