"Marne Brune" Nebbiolo d'Alba DOC 2019 - Fontanafredda

The name Marne Brune refers to the unique soil in which the Nebbiolo plants used for its production have their roots. Nebbiolo d'Alba DOC, Marne Brune comes from a careful processing of the best grapes harvested between Vezza d'Alba, Montaldo and Monteu Roero. After vinification, the wine matures for about a year in Allier oak barriques and then in the bottle for a period of 6-7 months. This is sufficient time to soften the typical sharpness of the Piedmontese vine, without excessively altering the initial fruit. What best characterises this wine, in fact, is its fragrance, which is easily observable from its colour, a more or less intense ruby red depending on the vintage, and which can also be detected thanks to the primary scents that distinguish it. It is easy to recognise, for example, the more delicate notes of flowers and small fruits of the undergrowth. In the mouth, on the other hand, one discovers a wine characterised by a fine personality, with a dry flavour. A fabulous everyday wine, it is ideal in combination with main courses of a certain importance, preferably meat-based. For an afternoon snack, on the other hand, it can also be served with a simple board of cold meats and medium-aged cheeses.

Founded by the first King of Italy in 1858. This inscription on Fontanafredda's website is enough to give a sense of a company that to call "historic" is almost reductive. Fontanafredda was born out of a love story. It was in fact given by Vittorio Emanuele II to his beloved Rosa Vercellana, the famous "bella Rosina". Beyond this ante litteram gossip, however, Fontanafredda has always been a point of reference for regional and Italian viticulture in general. In fact, many curious records belong to this winery. The first vineyard in Barolo was purchased in 1866, and the first vinification took place in 1870. In 1886, Fontanafredda's Barolo wines reached America, and in 1887, the first cement tanks in Europe were built. Finally, 1959 saw the production of the first classic method sparkling wine, the forerunner of Alta Langa DOCG. The last step in the glorious history of this winery, after its acquisition by Oscar Farinetti and Luca Baffigo, is in 2018. Since that year, the company has been producing certified organic wines. Today, Fontanafredda, which exports to over 60 countries around the world, can count on a complex of 120 hectares of vineyards. And in its cellars there are over 2.5 million bottles of Barolo waiting to be put on the market. Long live... Fontanafredda!
