Barolo Fontanin 2015 Livia Fontana

Variety: Nebbiolo 100%

The Barolo Fontanin is produced with the traditional method, that is combining the grapes of several vineyards. Most come from the Mariondino cru, while the rest from the Serra vineyard, both administratively located in the municipality of Castiglione Falletto. Mariondino is a small vineyard adjacent to the Cascina Fantana: the last vineyard before changing towns, becoming Bussia and consequently Monforte d’Alba. While Serra is always in Castiglione Falletto, and is the westernmost part of the famous cru Villero.

Mariondino has sun exposure to the west, and has an espalier training system with guyot pruning.

Soil: it is composed of sandstone marls with a significant presence of sand.

Barolo Fontanin 2015 Livia Fontana

Ruby red color.

The nose has precise and intense hints of fresh fruit, in particular plum, and undergrowth, with the earth and that wonderful and variegated world that composes it. The characteristic notes of juicy white peach, such as the Empire quality, and those of china and rhubarb.

Overall, the sensations aroused by perfumes are of the highest quality, which is why they are exciting.

On the palate it is rich, voluminous and at the same time endowed with great structure. Ripe and silky tannins characterize without irritating the mouth, while minerality and acidity distribute drinkability to the whole. On the back, the notes of rhubarb come back, to remove any doubt even in the face of a blind tasting. on the variety and finally on the origin.

Great traditional Barolo, and excellent hand of the young Michele Fontana, which will be talked about for a long time in the future. After the Consulaenza by Donato Lanati, Michele has been doing it for himself for some years now, and the positive difference is more than evident.

It is the content in the glass that says it.

Livia Fontana’s company has existed since 1850, but now it is admirably conducted by her and her two children. Lorenzo helps him in commercial terms, while Michele is the author, who rules the field and the cellar.
