Fontanafredda Barolo Vigna La Rosa 2008
Wine SpectatorFine harmony and sweet cherry and berry flavors are the hallmarks of this rich Barolo. Licorice, spice and tobacco flavors add depth as it stays focused and persistent through the finish. The tannins are ripe and well-integrated. Best from 2015 through 2033. 1,500 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Barolo Vigna La Rosa is graceful and effortless. Soft, silky tannins support expressive red cherries, plums, flowers, spices and licorice. This feminine Barolo is best enjoyed over the next handful of years, but it has enough freshness for at least another decade-plus. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.
