Fontanafredda Alta Langa Hundred Sixty-Four

Fontanafredda's 164th birthday bubbly is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes in just 4338 bottles, disgorged after 105 months on the lees. On the occasion of this special birthday, the bottle of Alta Langa Hundred Sixty Four bears an original lithographic print of the Fontanafredda estate, which has been digitally printed in white directly on glass and embellished with gold leaf. The print depicts the estate between 1900 and 1918 in its heyday, during its greatest commercial expansion with 200 employees and more than 40 families living in the village.

Perlage

The pérlage is very fine and very persistent.

Colour

Golden yellow with green reflections.

Bouquet

The scents of great intensity and complexity recall honey and spices, toasted dried fruits, and bread crust.

Flavour

In the mouth, the pinot nero structure is felt. The long and persistent aftertaste with fresh and sapid feelings.

Pairing

Excellent as an aperitif, with its unquestionable personality, it is above-all a great way of accompanying all courses with class.
