Name Fontanabianca Barbaresco (DOCG) 2018 (ID# 3184)
Varietal Nebbiolo
Region Italy: Piedmont
Notes "Packed with plum, cherry, earth, tobacco and iron flavors, this red is as savory as it is fruity. Firms up on the finish, with mouthcoating tannins leaving their mark on the finish. Eucalyptus and rosemary accents linger. Best from 2025 through 2045." (Wine Spectator) "The Fontanabianca 2018 Barbaresco is taut and elegant, showing the kind of bright primary fruit that should accompany this wine as it begins and completes its aging trajectory. The wine is very silky and fine, and it shows a nuanced texture that gives this bottle its competitive edge." (Wine Advocate)
