Fontanafredda Barbaresco 2015
Rich and chewy in texture, this red evokes cherry, rhubarb, floral and leafy underbrush flavors. Beefy tannins rein in the finish, showing juicy acidity underneath. Best from 2022 through 2036. 15,000 cases made, 2,250 cases imported.
Woodland berry, iris, violet, game and a whiff of tilled earth form the nose. The taut light-bodied palate offers juicy red cherry, star anise and a hint of rusted iron alongside tight polished tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2020-2025.
