Fontanafredda Piemonte Barbera Briccotondo 2014

Fontanafredda Piemonte Barbera Briccotondo 750ML 2014   
Sku: 22829

Grapes are grown in west and south-west hillside vineyards with calcareous sand-rich marly soils in Monferrato and Langhe.

Tasting notes
Color - Ruby red with purple highlights Bouquet - The nose is packed with black fruit, especially blackberries and plums, with slight spicy overtones hinting at black pepper and cinnamon. Taste - Sweet, soft tannins come together in a closely-woven texture that combines with great fruit character and crisp freshness, culminating in a long, tasty finish.

Wine maker notes
Vines are guyot trained with plant density at 4,600 plants/ha. Hand harvested in the end of September, beginning of October. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 6-7 days at a temperature of 73-77F. During this time, the must is pumped over the cap in order to optimize the extraction of the tannins and color. As soon as the alcoholic fermentation has ended, the wine is racket into concrete tanks for malolactic fermentation, which is completed by December.

Technical notes
100% Barbera

Food pairing
A perfect match for starters, cured meats and a variety of fresh and mature cheeses
