Fontanabianca's Barbaresco is a stylistically perfect and harmonious Nebbiolo. It rests for about 15 months in large casks and barriques.

On the palate, it is powerful, complex and multi-faceted. Vigorous, with measured tannins and a tangy, sometimes rustic sapidity. A real textbook Barbaresco. It should therefore be served with first courses in meat sauce, roasts, braised meats, game and, naturally, with a cutting board of well-aged cheeses.
