F. Fredda Barolo La Villa 82 1982

F. Fredda Barolo La Villa 82 750ML 1982   
Sku: 342864

All grapes for this single vineyard offering come from the “La Villa” vineyard in the village of Barolo. Vines are planted at 1050-1215 feet above sea level facing east and south-east exposure. The Tortonian Miocene era soils are packed with limestone, potassium oxide, phosphor and copper.

Tasting notes
Color - Ruby-red with garnet highlights Bouquet - Brimming with black fruit - cherries, blackberries and plums - and with spicy aromas of cinnamon, cloves and black pepper. Taste - Soft, sweet tannins combine with a strong fruit character. The acidity is nicely balanced with the tannins, giving a sense of freshness that prolongs the finish.

Wine maker notes
Vines are guyot trained with plant density at 4,800 plants/ha. Following hand harvest in mid-October, grapes are de-stemmed and crushed. The crushed grapes are warmed to around 89-91°F, and the process of pumping the juice over the cap of skins begins immediately. This takes place very frequently over the first 3 days in order to extract an optimal amount of color and tannins. As the alcohol content increases, the extraction of too many tannins is prevented by dropping the temperature to around 77°F, and reducing the volume of liquid pumped over the skins. During this maceration lasting 20-30 days, delastages are performed to improve the extraction of the tannins, and at the same time to oxygenate the yeast so it will ferment in ideal conditions to provide cleaner, more elegant aromas. The alcoholic fermentation is followed immediately by the malolactic fermentation, which is encouraged by keeping the wine in temperature-controlled tanks at 68°F.

Technical notes
100% Nebbiolo

Food pairing
It is excellent served with flavorful meat dishes and mature cheeses.
