Winemaker Notes: The color is garnet-red with ruby highlights that take on a slightly orange tone over time. It has a clear-cut, intense nose with overtones of vanilla, spices, withered roses and underbrush. The taste is dry, but soft, full-bodied, velvety and well balanced, and is very long-lasting. Ideal with big red meat dishes and medium or mature cheeses, it can also make for pleasant after-dinner company.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


James Suckling - "A Barolo that shows black truffles, wet earth, dried rose petals, cedar and orange rind. Full body, a tightly knit tannin structure, vivid acidity and a grainy finish. Stylish. Drink in 2020."


Wine Enthusiast - "Iris, rose, forest floor and menthol aromas come to the forefront on this fragrant red. On the taut linear palate, bright acidity and refined tannins balance juicy sour cherry, red raspberry and star anise. Drink through 2024."


Decanter - "This bottling has a long track record and is aged traditionally. The nose is juicy and upfront, with stylish red fruits. A sleek attack leads into a silky but concentrated palate, with ripe tannins and good weight of fruit. It's solid but not too extracted, with a firm mid-palate and no lack of structure. It's a touch fluid on the finish, but not faded or dilute. Quite long. Drinking Window 2019 - 2032"


Wine & Spirits - "This bottling with Fontanafredda’s classic striped label includes fruit from a number of crus in Serralunga d’Alba. Brisk acidity dominates at first, then the wine fleshes out to reveal bright cherry flavors edged in orange peel and Darjeeling tea. Its moderate price tag makes the wine a good candidate to pour by the glass."
