Fontanafredda 1958 – 1982, Dinner at Lupa, October 6th, 7pm
The historical importance of Fontanafredda for Barolo cannot be overstated; it’s one of the oldest and largest properties in the region, and one of the first to estate-bottle and market under its own label. This is beautifully related in Kerin O’Keefe’s “Barolo and Barbaresco," and it’s quite a story, starting with the Kings of Italy and arriving in the present with the current owners, one of the kings of Italian retail. I confess to ignoring Fontanafredda for a long time, as the wines didn’t have a very good image (in my mind, anyway). Then in 2007 we were invited to a big vertical tasting there; I moaned and groaned, but thankfully Gregory Dal Piaz insisted we go. We tasted about a dozen wines, back to 1961, and we discovered that the old vintages are very fine, classic wines. Since then I haven’t tasted the wines often, so I’m excited about this dinner at Lupa, where we will try Barolo from 1958, 1961, 1967, 1971 (two single-vineyards), 1974, 1978, and 1982. Jamie Wolff
