An acknowledgment that tastes like #Renaissance
Barolo DOCG del Comune di Serralunga d’Alba 2018 #Renaissance is our most iconic wine, the first municipal appellation ever released for Barolo, produced since 1988. An identifying Barolo, which embodies the power of Serralunga d’Alba terroir and the elegance of our style. After 30 years from its birth, the Barolo Serralunga d’Alba Fontanafredda changed and became new, as instrument for a new rebirth, the Green Renaissance. Through our most iconic wine we want to awaken the critical spirit of those who drink it, analyzing in 10 years the 10 feelings that in the history of our civilization have given rise to collective rebirths. The word we started with is Hope, through Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d’Alba 2018 “The Barolo of Hope”.
Floral, balsamic, vibrant, fresh and with a new truth. A unique wine, with a bright ruby red color with brilliant garnet reflections, the nose has a beautiful florality with a clear and intense aroma, reminiscent of roses and undergrowth, which immediately gives way to the complexity of all its spices. In the mouth it is soft, silky and then the vibrant tannin immediately emerges which makes it clear that it is a wine capable of aging for many years.
According to Bruce Sanderson, Senior Editor of Wine Spectator and taster for Italy, “This is a lovely expression of cherry, rose and mineral flavors, with freshness and purity. Shows a solid underpinning of dense, yet refined tannins. Long finish. Best from 2025 through 2042”
“Because wine is terroir, the combination of earth and sky, an unbreakable bond that once again makes us proud of our beloved roots, the Langhe.“
