Surely still young but by opening it a few hours before, the wine is already fully expressed. On the nose as well as on the palate, there is an explosion of red fruits with a floral side. Good today, certainly very good tomorrow.more reviews

"Very silky and fine, and it shows a nuanced texture that gives this bottle its competitive edge." Robert Parker
Here Nebbiolo thrives on the south-facing clay-limestone soils of Neive. The wine is matured in stainless steel vats, oak barrels and ancient tanks for more than two years so as not to leave too much of a mark on the wines. The juicy, ripe cherry is underlined by a superb minerality in a bouquet with delicate nuances of rose petals, saffron and spices. The palate asserts its character through the power of its tannins while being ripe and sophisticated. We find a round and sensual core on the palate for a deep and complex finish that lingers. This is a vintage that will seduce wine lovers from all over the world!

A splendid vintage for this Barbaresco, a wine for a great occasion. Full-bodied and balanced, it immediately strikes for its intense aroma, with notes of spices and coffee. Really interesting value for money. Highly recommended.

A true hymn to Italian elegance, ardent, vibrant and sensual. A great value for money.

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.
