A wine that has been a consistently great buy for older Barolo, we've had many successful reports over the years from clients that are very experienced Barolo with age. 1971 is a particular favorite, a wine that many have bought by the case in the past with incredible results. These bottles are in fantastic condition and have been individually inspected with great fills and no leaking, which can be seen pictured above. Towards the end of the 50s and through the 60s, Fontanafredda experienced an explosion of quality sparked by Cavelier Bressano, leading to Fontanafredda becoming a recognized and high-quality producer. The 70s were an epic era for Fontanafredda, with some of their top wines produced during those ten years. 1971 as many savvy Piedmont fans are aware, is a fantastic vintage for Barolo and the Fontanafredda is a perfect example. A wine that still has fruit but with the classic flavors that appear like spice, herbs, and animal notes. Many of these older Barolos don't need food to be enjoyed and are at times best enjoyed with lighter fare as not to take away from the subtleties of the wine. A great set of recent notes on CellarTracker, we have some of the only bottles available in the US right now, and it is not a bottle to miss for fans of older Barolo.
