Gifts from the year 1955
Fontanafredda is one of the historical wineries of the Langhe. (Piedmont) Very important producer of prestigious Barolo.
Great wines come from this area.
Buy old wine, that’s great.
Totally awesome if you buy a special year (vintage) for someone you love. An old bottle of wine from his/her: year of birth, marriage year, anniversary year?
Nowadays you hear more about “investing in old wines”. What a fact is, is that the old wines from our society disappear.
Can we drink the wine? That remains a crucial question. No one can answer. The good wines from the right wine zones can be drunk into old age. Also is very important how the wine always has been preserved. You know, a lot of factors play a role. To find out if the wine is still mature, is to open the bottle.
Should you decide to uncork the bottle, please observe the following:
* After transport let the bottle rest
* 2 weeks for use: bottle upright (room temperature)
* Make sure you get a good opener. The Cork from an old wine may be fragile.
( accessories: you find the right waiter knife and openers). Use preferably no
Should you decide to leave the bottle in the original state, is also fantastic. An old bottle of wine on the mantelpiece. Beautiful decoration!
Or, Enjoy the beautiful and attractive label of the old bottle, nostalgia.
