Fontanafredda Barbaresco Coste Rubìn 2008

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

Spicy overtones on well-balanced wood, intense vanilla, cooked fruit and cinnamon.Fontanafredda s revival under Oscar Farinetti looks assured and this sleeping beauty of the Langhe - its vineyards are surely among the finest in the area - is now on a clear upward trajectory. It s a winery that combines this great history - Fontanafredda used to have its own bakery and school, and still preserves a great sense of community - with thoroughly modern production facilities for everything from Asti to Barolo.Grapes: 100% NebbioloRegion: Italy / Piemonte / Barbaresco DOCGMaker: Oscar FarinettiNotes: Brilliant garnet-red colour, while the bouquet is complex, with ethereal, spicy overtones on well-balanced wood, intense vanilla, cooked fruit and cinnamon. Its deep, velvety and well-balanced flavour lingers on the palate, confirming the long ageing process which combines lavish nature with great technical skill.Serve: At 14-16c with big red meat dishes and medium or mature cheeses.ABV: 14.5%Suitable for Vegetarians - Organic
