Reviews and Ratings

L.J. Palmer WSET 3 rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

Wine is medium ruby in colour, dry, medium bodied, refreshing acidity and smooth, fine grained tannin. The nose is pronounced and features lovely floral aromas, primarily rose, pronounced sweet red cherry, and a pine or balsam note. The fruit aromas are fresh and juicy. Taste is very cherry with an overlay of pine/balsam, some spice and black pepper along with pleasant savory taste. Finish is medium and is of savory cherry. This is a very well balanced wine, juicy and smooth, a pleasure to drink on its own or with food.
From the Piedmont wine region, Fontanabianca 2015 Barbaresco is fragrant with pink floral, earthy underbrush and dark berry aromas on the nose. Full-bodied, dry and savoury on the palate with more bright red berry, cherry, savoury herb flavours, finishing with white pepper spice and zesty acidity. Great poise and balance. Pair with a grilled New York striploin steak. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
