Fontanabianca 2015 (Italy: Piedmont)

Name Fontanabianca 2015
Varietal Barbaresco (DOCG)
Region Italy: Piedmont
Notes "Enticing aromas of woodland berry, rose petal, underbrush and a balsamic note lead the nose. On the juicy, savory palate, notes of star anise, white pepper and mint accent a red-cherry core. It's well balanced, with fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2021–2029." (Wine Enthusiast)

Additional Notes

"The cherry and berry fruit flavors have a confected note in this elegant red, yet stay within bounds as forest floor and bitter herb elements join the party. Finishes on the austere side. Best from 2023 through 2042." (Wine Spectator)
