Grapes are grown mainly around the town of Alba and the villages of Treiso, La Morra and Neive in well-exposed, mid-hillside vineyards with fairly compact calcareous soils.
Wine maker notes
Vines are guyot trained with plant density at 4,800 plants/ha. Hand harvested in mid-September. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats for 6-8 days at a temperature of 75-77°F, followed by malolactic fermentation.

Technical notes
13% abv

Food pairing
A fine match for hot hors-d’oeuvres, pasta, vegetables and not overly-elaborate meat dishes.

Producer
In the heart of wine-growing Piedmont – in the hills of the Langhe – Fontanafredda was born: chronicles of the time relate that “by order of 17 June 1858? an area of 138.82 “giornate piemontesi” (approx. 54 hectares) of the property of Roggeri Giacomo, son of Giovanni Battista in Serralunga d’Alba, was registered under the private estate of Vittorio Emanuele II King of Sardinia. The king, who had fallen hopelessly in love with Rosa Vercellana, also known as “La Bela Rusin”, a commoner and daughter of a drum major at his majesty’s service, gave the entire parcel of land to her, making her Countess of Mirafiori and Fontanfredda a year later. The history of Fontanafredda had begun, but it did not start operating as a business venture until twenty years later, in 1878, thanks to the farsightedness of Emanuele Guerrieri, Count of Mirafiore, son of the king and Bela Rusin, a noble entrepreneur who devoted his life to wine with a very modern approach.
