The Coste Rubin Barbaresco DOCG by Fontanafredda is revealed in the glass in an intense ruby red with garnet red shimmer. The delicious aromas of ripe plums, blueberries and violets unfold. These notes are rounded off by delicate notes of liquorice, cinnamon and tobacco.
With a good tannin structure and intense fruit, this full-bodied red wine presents itself on the palate.
Vinification for the Fontanafredda Coste Rubin Barbaresco
After harvesting, the grapes for this varietal Nebbiolo from Piedmont are immediately destemmed and pressed and fermentation is carried out with selected yeasts. In order to optimize the extraction of the colour and tannins, the must is regularly circulated. After maceration lasting 10-12 days, malolactic fermentation follows.
For ageing, this wine is first placed in large French oak barrels for one year before maturing for a short time in stainless steel tanks. The maturation process is completed by refining this Barbaresco in the bottle.
