Loved this Barbaresco, young but developed with notes of leather, tobacco and tanins. Very good price to quality ratio will definitely buy again, recommend for beginners/intermediate looking at exploring good Italian winemore 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 perfumed nose of truffle, dried cranberry and violet followed by a round body cut by lean acidity and sandy tannins offer typicity whilst above average concentration confirm agability and a quality that defies the price.

Un véritable hymne à l'élégance Italienne, ardente, vibrante et sensuelle. Un rapport prix/complexité imbattable ! Laissez le quelques années en cave et vous ne serez pas déçu !

We opened it a little before a meal to taste it, and the first sip seemed "strange", too cold, we thought, and indeed, as soon as it got to the right temperature it began to take on nuances, becoming a complex wine, with marked tannins.

Very fine expression of fruit and spices. Well-controlled acid/alcohol balance. Good ageing potential for this wine, which we buy regularly.

This is a Barbaresco, with a full-bodied, fleshy character of black berries and damp undergrowth. It's a good wine to enjoy, but its ageing potential makes it even more interesting.

A fairly young Barbaresco. Garnet in colour, very clear and limpid. Berries in aroma, also some light hints of leather and tobacco. Very tannic on the palate, a little unbalanced acidity. Perhaps it is too early for this wine: it will certainly develop very well over the next few years.

A very good wine, but it needs to be decanted and allowed to come to temperature. Delicious red fruit, subtle spices, undergrowth and an interesting length on the palate. The tannins are perhaps still a little too present. A wine to keep!

It was so good to read Alessandro Baricco's Barbarians, in which the flavours and characteristics of BARBARESCO are so highly praised. This one is no exception. Remember to decant it well and leave it at room temperature.

Light ruby colour.
On the nose, notes of forest fruits - raspberry and blackberry - predominate.
Good intensity on the palate, with slightly drying tannins.

Good Barbaresco. Pale colour and red fruit aromas accompany a well-balanced, non-trivial entry into the mouth. The finish is not too long and dry.

Balanced at times with hints of cherry and tobacco, tannic at the right point, it goes well with tripe and boiled meats, achieving an excellent combination, ready to drink even now, but still a little aged a certainty

A highly refined wine, with fine, velvety tannins and a silky texture.
A perfect accompaniment to meats and cheeses, or can even be enjoyed on its own.

A very elegant wine with an important structure. Complex aromas with dense and delicate tannins that balance the alcohol content. Excellent finish and pleasantness of taste.

Decant to bring out its best. Very tannic, a little astringent. Spicy, woody, black fruit. A perfect wine for a barbecue with friends. Goes well with red meats.

This is a region and appellation that needs no introduction in Italy. It went straight into the cellar and will stay there for a few years. The tasting will come later.

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.
