Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Ruby-red color with garnet reflections. The aromas are sharp and intense, with hints of vanilla, spices, withered roses and underbrush. The taste is dry, but soft, full, velvety, harmonious and very long lasting.

Critical Acclaim

"Thanks to new ownership and recent dynamic changes, the historic Fontanafredda estate is poised to bring us many beautiful surprises in the future. This gorgeous Nebbiolo from the opulent 2007 vintage delivers delicate floral aromas of red rose and violet in front of espresso, chocolate, cola and black cherry. Drink after 2018."
94 Points

"Beautiful aromas of blueberries, blackberries and flowers. Full bodied, with focused, bright fruits. Raspberries and milk chocolate that turn to minerals. Wonderful fruit all around. Best after 2013. "

This Barolo is a rare find that will not last long. The winery that produced this wine has recently come under new ownership and management. As such, the pricing for this vintage is very affordable and should not be over looked as i believe future wines from this maker will sell in the $60 - $70 range per bottle. This Barolo is a fine representation of the Piedmonte wines. Its classic appearance of ruby red and garnet is distinctive of the Nebbiolo grape for which the Piedmonte region is famous. This young vintage has excellent legs and aromas of plum, ripe fruit, earth, oak and spices emanate readily. The pallet is very well balanced with pleasant tannins that will only serve to get better with age. The deep plum and spice notes transition smoothly into the earthy spice notes that dominate the long and dry finish characteristic of this species of grape. Drinkable now, this wine will be excellent as well as a great investment 10 - 15 years from now. 93 pts. UPDATE: Since I purchased a case of this vintage on 20 April, the price went up from $39.99 to $45.00. Better hurry!

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
