Barolo

Barolo DOCG

The history of Barolo lives on today thanks to the Historic Reserves kept in our cellars. These precious bottles of old vintages were produced according to the true tradition of the Langhe, selecting the finest vineyards, in order to create great Barolo, perfect for long ageing.

Barolo Riserva

Produced only in certain vintages, when nature surpasses the hand of man, traditionally selecting the best grapes from the estate-owned vineyards historically known to have the best exposure. It ages in oak barrels for at least six years.

Vigna La Rosa

Fontanafredda’s most historical and representative vineyard lies right at the heart of  the Fontanafredda M.G.A. This wine is named after La Bella Rosina and it is no coincidence that this strip of land, rich in sand, limestone and blue marl typical of Serralunga, is reminiscent of the floral scents of the rose. A deep, long and warm Barolo.

MGA Fontanafredda

Fontanafredda is one of the 181 MGAs and is named after the amphitheatre of vineyards of the same name at the entrance to the municipality of Serralunga d'Alba. A Barolo of outstanding finesse and elegance. (aggiungere Monopole)

Le Righe

Softly coloured horizontal stripes, historical and distinctive traits that characterise the origin, provenance and savoir-faire of Fontanafredda. Opposite colours that attract and complement each other. Just like the wines, deep and straight like the stripes, blended and elegant like the colours. The stripes that decorate the houses were created to distinguish the royal houses from the others, to give them a precise origin and provenance, so that everyone could recognise them historically.

I Fuoriclasse

We are not in the habit of being over the top, but sometimes inspired and eccentric wines are born: Fuoriclasse are wines that are capricious and extravagant, that find it naturally hard to stick to the straight and narrow. Vineyards, subzones or land parcels owned or managed by Fontanafredda which offer another side of our terroir, a story just waiting to be told.

Alta Langa

Alta Langa is Piedmont's only DOCG traditional method sparkling wine. The idea for this wine was conceived in 1990 by seven producers who began making the finest quality sparkling wine. Made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes grown on the hills of the Langhe, at altitudes in excess of 250 metres above sea level, it is always vintage and spends at least 30 months ageing on its lees in the bottle.

Charmat

Vintage

These are our bubbles, made according to the long Charmat method. Careful selection during harvest and innovative production techniques ensure the creation of limited quantities of the finest quality wine.

Platinum

These are our bubbles, made according to the long Charmat method. Careful selection during harvest and innovative production techniques ensure the creation of limited quantities of the finest quality wine.

Briccotondo

Let’s break up the concept that an internationally appealing wine has to be made using international grape varieties! Be smart and friendly with extraordinary pleasant wines obtained with indigenous grapes which are true expression of their area of origin. Briccotondo wines are “traditional” but at the same time please the taste of the most demanding consumers worldwide, matching perfectly to modern lifestyle and daily meals’ occasions.

Specialità

The true “Spirit” of our hills. We never throw anything away: the best marc from our most representative Crus gives birth to the most amazing grappas; and a recipe that we have safeguarded since the beginning of the 20th century is used to make our legendary Baolo Chinato.
