Fontanafredda Vigna Lazzarito Barolo DOCG 1999
Fontanafredda’s top wine has long been made from the grapes of the Lazzarito and La Delizia vineyards, and in this vintage they have been used together. The 1999 Barolo Lazzarito, accordingly, is the most important of the series, explosive on the nose with very warm aromas of roses, tar, cinnamon, and chocolate. The palate is equally impressive, with a potent extract, superior length and continuity, significant mineral and road tar notes, and lush, sweet fruit. Fleshy, forceful, and focused, it is surprisingly open and expressive, but will drink best from 2007 to 2025.
