2018 Fontanafredda Barolo

SKU #5063445
Winery Notes- Ruby-red with garnet highlights. Aroma is clean, full and intense, with the wine's typical traces of withered flowers, dry leaves and underbrush. A robust, well-bodied wine packed with structure and capable of withstanding the test of time. The acidity is nicely balanced with the tannins, giving 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.

JAMES SUCKLING RATING: 91
JAMES SUCKLING REVIEW: The raspberry and red-cherry aromas and flavors are very clean and there’s some fine, lightly firm tannin that gives some structure, but this remains principally a fresh, medium-bodied and fluid wine.
WINE ENTHUSIAST RATING: 91
WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: Violet, rose and woodland berry aromas mingle with a whiff of leather on this medium-bodied red. It's polished, savory and already at the start of its drinking window, with juicy red cherry, strawberry and baking spice flavors accompanied by lithe tannins and fresh acidity.
WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 91
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: A supple red, with macerated plum and cherry flavors that hold court, while savory elements of eucalyptus and juniper add depth. Reveals tar and earthy accents, with a kick of tannins at the end. Best from 2025 through 2042.
