Strawberry, cherry along with almond, licorice and another vegetal thing I just can't place. The palate is very well balanced with a monster of an acid backbone, some red fruit shining all along, good width with some nice grippy, vivid mouthfeel, very lively, pointy tannins that kick up a very long finish with fruit and almond. We paired it with a splendid 45 days matured beef spare rib of bœuf de Galice on the barbecue. A pairing made in heaven. — 9 days ago

Fontanafredda 160th Anniversary Collection.
Tight in the beginning. Fruits and berries. Perfumed intense aromatics. Rose petals, rather concentrated and sweet on the nose. Very focused. Energetic. Good balance on the palate. Ripe fruits, dense with medium (-) body. Dries rose and black cherry.
1996 is a classic Barolo vintage. Wines with good structure, tough tannins and nervous acidity. — 2 months ago
Quite a bit of depth. Paired well with bruschetta. — 22 days ago
Wonderful Langhe Nebbiolo. Aromas and flavors of cherry, anise, dried flowers and tobacco. Cherry and black licorice flavors with a beautiful oaky finish. Balanced acidity and the tannin structure is on point. Seemed light out of the bottle but not at all the case. Solid value from a consistent producer. — a month ago
