Fontana is one of the oldest Barolo produced following a classic and natural

1961 wine Harvest - outstanding vintage; a very hot and dry summer helped the recovery of a
spring vegetative delay; excellent maturation of the grape; high quantities of the
grapes in terms of volume. Winemaking: regular fermentation and submerged cap
maceration; racking off during the last days of November. Ageing: two years in
concrete vats and over three years in big Slavonian oak barrels. Bottling: July 1967.
Serving suggestion

Fontana Barolo - These precious bottles could have some sediment settled in the bottom, for
this reason decanting the wine few minutes before the service is recommended.

Perfect pairing - We think it is wrong to recommend a “perfect” food - wine pairing, because
everyone have their personal ideas and tastes. However we can suggest with whom
it is perfect to drink this wine. With everybody!
