One of Fontanafreddas traditional labels made from DOCG areas in Piedmont, giving consistant quality. This should be mature on the nose with tobacco and wood smoke. Smooth resolved tannins carry dried fruits and vanilla. Absolutely one to drink now! 

Information About Fontanafredda

In 1858 the King of Sardinia, Vittorio Emanuele II had fallen wildly in love with a commoner, and did the only thing he could to make their relationship a legitimate one, make her noble. Within a year, Rosa Vercellana "La Bele Rusin" was Countess of Mirafiori and Fontanafredda. Their son, Emanuele Guerrieri, would be the wine devoted entrepreneur, who would arrange the vineyards to begin delivering quality wines with a modern approach. 

The vineyards of today cover 85 hectares, planted with Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto and Moscato.

Producer's Note:

Nose: Incredible: elegant and perfectly balanced, combining gentle fruit, soft spice and aromatic wood. Tropical notes of mango and papaya are joined by sweet berries before waves of cinnamon, nutmeg, musky eucalyptus, incense and anise add further complexity.
 
Palate: Silkily textured, and initially dark in character: chocolate and toasted orange accompanied by Chinese tea, with rich leather and tobacco notes. Lighter flavours develop and build on top, with citrus zest adding fresh overtones to this venerable whisky. Herbal notes join the fray, providing a leafy and aromatic core.
 
Finish: Soft at first, but it grows in weight, gathering citrus bitterness and gentle fruity sweetness.
Overall: A combination of old whiskies that emphasises and enhances the elegance and flavour they've picked up during their long years of maturation. An incredible whisky, evidence of the skill of Nikka's blenders.
