Tasting Note:

A little closed initially but allow it time and broad, plump but fresh ripe fruits soon sweep across the palate. Initial impressions are of cool berry flavours with a brambly earthiness to the fruit. The palate gradually unfurls with a mix of bright and dark tayberry and loganberry notes with cooling hints of moss and undergrowth, whilst a lingering suggestion of plum sits in the background. Overall this feels like one of the breezier, fresher wines in this cellar albeit in a solidly built style - , crisp fruits in a full and gripping structure. Fossati sits mostly in the Barolo commune, tipping into La Morra at its steepest western end. The slope is relatively gentle and the soil is mainly deep and clay influenced, though is much stonier at its steepest part at the top of the hill. As well as soil depth, the vineyard is also characterised by its very uniform east/south east exposure and its high altitude of 340 to 480m above sea level. Voerzio have a small plot planted with 35-40 year old vines.
