Rich fragrances of roses, liquorice, and spices. Complex and harmonious on the palate, with the right balance between fruit, tannin and acidity.
This is a complex and austere wine that is incredibly rich in every way. Though the colour is never deep, the wine has great profundity and concentration with a balance of tannin and acidity that, initially, gives it a character that is hard, unrevealing, even austere. With age, Barolo gains in smoothness while the primary fruit and fermentation aromas give way to a more complex bouquet of liquorice, tar, roses and a host of other sensations. Cascina Fontana Barolo has great persistence and a very long finish.
