4 /5

Classic dark 'tar' and perfumed 'roses' on the nose, light in colour but with great power, concentration and well balanced ripe tannins. This is a wine to match with rich foods and game dishes.

4 /5

The nobility of the name of Fontanafredda - historical company acquired in mid-800 by the King Vittorio Emanuele II - is the greatest expression through the equally noble Barolo. Entirely composed of Nebbiolo, this Barolo is fermented in steel and then aged in large Slavonian oak barrels for a time of at least 2 years. Other 12 months - minimum - in bottles, make it ready to make its entry into the market. The dried rose, spices, notes of underbrush and the fascinating background of licorice determine the nose, the varietal identity of this "wine of kings". The palate shows a full body and rich in structure but, at the same time, played on the fineness of a polished tannin. It lends itself to accompany important dishes, such as a fillet with mushrooms or, to stay on the local gastronomic typicality, a fondue enriched with truffle shavings.

The best wine for a gift.
The Fontanafredda wine is of a red ruby colour, having reddish brown edges. A smell quite well. I think it was a little bit salty.
