It is presented with a nice medium ruby color on the glass. On the nose as aromas of black cherry and violet. Medium body, velvety elegant tannins, nice acidity, real mouth watering! Taste of red fruit and baking spices. Fantastic spicy finish.more reviews

"A charming, elegant and complex wine (...) a wild bouquet and a superb acidity that balances the roundness of the wine" R. Parker
The Barbera d'Alba cuvée is made from vines aged between 10 and 30 years. The flagship Barbera grape variety thrives here on limestone and sandy soils. The vines benefit from ideal sunshine with an easterly exposure. The grapes are selected at full maturity and then undergo a short maceration before being aged for several months in French oak barrels. Fontanabianco produces a Barbera d'Alba on the fruit, with a nice freshness maintaining a spicy and supple structure. This model cuvée of its appellation is certainly the best complexity at this price in Piedmont.

Definitely trustworthy Barbera. Medium ruby color, medium bodied. Notes of red & black fruit and a hint of chocolate. Smooth tannin and good acidity along the fruitiness. Lacks a bit of complexity but then again it is nice simplistic wine to go with various dishes.

Enjoy it with a platter of cold meats and cheeses. A superb deep red colour and a powerful wine that perhaps deserves to age a little. Don't hesitate to decant it beforehand to enhance its aromas. Top value for money.

A racy and spicy Barbera typical of the greatest Superiore at an idyllic price! Don't waste another second.

FONTANABIANCA

The estate and its 14 hectares of vines are located in the village of Neive, in the heart of the Barbaresco appellation. Aldo Pola, with the help of his wife Luisella and his children, continues the work started in 1969 by his father Franco. Their goal is to present the territory of Neive in the bottle. The estate has been modernized over the years in order to achieve the right balance between tradition and technology necessary to best preserve the characteristics of the wine. As everywhere in Piedmont, here the Nebbiolo is the king of grape varieties. The microclimate and the sun add to the terroir and make this DOCG the real protagonist of a territory where the Barbera, Dolcetto and Arneis grape varieties are also well regarded. From the United States to Northern Europe, from Japan to Australia, the wines of Fontanabianca renew the tradition of a land of perfume and great elegance.
