Serralunga d'Alba Barolo DOCG 2009 - 93 points, San Diego International Wine Competition /
Serralunga d'Alba Barolo 2008 - 91 points, Wine Enthusiast/ There's a hard, iron edge to this red, softened somewhat by ripe cherry and strawberry flavors. Licorice and earth accents chime in as this unfolds to the long finish.
Serralunga d’Alba Barolo 2008 - 90 points, JamesSuckling.com/ A little lean but some attractive berry and hazelnut character. Medium to full body, with medium chewy tannins and a bright finish. Drink or hold.
Serralunga d’Alba Barolo 2007 - 92 points, Wine Review Online / Fontanafredda’s 2007 Barolo from its vineyards in Serralunga d’Alba, one of the communes that comprise the Barolo DOCG, is a deceptive wine. Surprisingly approachable initially--perhaps the nature of the vintage--the tannins and structure become readily apparent in the finish. The tannins, however, do not obliterate the elegance and overall class of the wine, allowing the lovely combination of pure fruit and earthy flavors to shine. The classic “tar and roses” description of Barolo is apt here. It’s a young wine with a bright future.
Serralunga d'Alba Barolo 2007 - 94 points, Wine Enthusiast/ 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.
Serralunga d'Alba Barolo 2007 - 91 points, Wine Spectator/ Dark and brooding, offering tar, black cherry and spice notes, this richly textured red has dense, ripe tannins to match. The black cherry theme lingers on the finish.
Serralunga d'Alba Barolo 2006 - 91 points, Wine Spectator/ Ripe and smoky, delivering plum, black cherry, spice and mineral elements that bind with the firm structure. This is dense and chewy, with a slightly dry finish. There is plenty of fruit here, so be patient.
