Coming from the vineyard "Raimonda", one of the the oldest vineyard of our 159 years old estate, this wine belongs to the most prestigious appellation: Barbera d'Alba and it is a good example of traditional Piedmontese Barbera with an international approach. It belongs to the "Stripes line", the most iconic for Fontanafredda, representing the decoration of our buildings as an heritage of Italian Royal Family's. The wine won the Gold medal at the 2015 Berliner Wine Trophy.
Deep ruby-red colour when young, it tends to garnet-red on ageing. It has a rather intense, characteristic nose which is flowery and fruity at the same time, with nice light overtones of wood, spices and vanilla. The flavour is full, persistent, nicely dry and velvety. Excellent with fairly demanding main courses, preferably meat-based without being over-elaborate, and with cold cuts and medium-mature cheeses. Serving temperature: 15-16°C.
