Vinification of Fontanafredda Serralunga d 'Alba Barolo 

This pure Barolo is vinified Nebbiolo grapes, the vines of which are rooted in soils of limestone, grey marl and sand. After harvesting the grapes in October, fermentation continues in a traditional way. This is carried out temperature-controlled over a period of 15 days in stainless steel tanks. The must remains in contact with the peels for a further 15 days to optimise the extraction of colour and aromas.

This red wine is then aged for one year in barriques and for another year in large French oak barrels. To give the Serralunga d 'Alba Barolo the finishing touch, it is stored in the bottle for at least another year.
