Founded in 1878 by Count Emmanuel Guerrieri son of Victor Emanuel II King of Italy. In 1931Monte deli Paschi di Siena took over and with more than a hundred years of history, experience and international recognition, the vineyards of Barolo and Fontanafredda produce only prized wines of unarguable quality.
The colour is deep ruby-red 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. The wine is already perfect to drink two years after the vintage. Its character and personality will be completed by a further period of ageing in the bottle.
Excellent with full-flavour dishes, meats and cheeses.
This dry, medium-bodied and fruity red displays a complex and medium nose. On the palate, its refreshing acidity, smooth tannins, and broad texture precede a medium finish.
