Fans of great Nebbiolo will want to stock up on this. This has all the hallmarks of classic Nebbiolo but it’s ready to drink now.

“Lots of dried strawberries with walnuts and lightly smoky, woody aromas, following through to a full body with chewy tannins and a juicy finish.” – James Suckling

Clean, full and intense nose, with typical traces of withered flowers, dry leaves and underbrush. Robust and well-bodied, with acidity and firm tannins that give a sense of freshness that prolongs the finish. Ideal with rich red meats, varying according to the wine and vintage, and medium and mature cheeses. Also lovely as an after-dinner wine.

Since 1878, the Fontanafredda Estate & Winery, located in the heart of Piedmont’s Langhe region, has been a benchmark producer of Barolo and Barbera, crafting wines that deftly balance deep aromas and concentration of fruit with elegance.
