Lots of acidity with aromas of tart and sour cherry. Full-bodied and fairly smooth. Pair with tangy tomato sauce or spicy sausages.
Nebbiolo food pairings: grilled pork sausages, lamb, hamburgers, roasted game meat.

|Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of plums, cedar, vanilla, and a persistent spicy finish expected from Nebbiolo. Very yummy, and perfect with pizza!
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Subtle aromas of tart cherry, and some cedar. Medium bodied, palate has bright fruit and nice acidity. Great with a rich bolognese sauce.
|Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Nice to find a Nebbiolo at this price. A more modern take on this grape showing more cherry fruit, less tannins and more tar and licorice than floral on the nose and palate. Good length with a nutty note late in the game.
|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Sour cherry candy and earth on the nose. The palate brings out the tart cherry flavor. Pair with spicy pasta dishes or hot Italian sausage.
|Ashley Quesnel rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
I love the approachability of the Nebbiolo wines from Langhe and this is no exception. Violet and tar notes greet you on the nose followed by dark cherry, tobacco and anise. The palate is dry and tannins are moderate. The acidity in this wine would make a great pairing with mushroom risotto.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Mild aromas and flavours include ripe blackberries, plums, cedar and vanilla. Tannins are low-medium, acidity is moderate, body is medium and finish is medium-long. Tasted Nov 2015.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
The 2012 vintage of Ebbio Nebbiolo yields from Langhe DIOC. The wine is 13.5% ABV and is ruby red. Tart with great acidity, well-balanced and ready for food. This wine persists with a long finish of tart cherry, and dry mouthfeel featuring minerality and full-body. Enjoy this wine with baked Italian pasta dishes 2015-2020.
|The Italian winery Fontanafredda has been making wine in the northern region of Piedmont for over 155 years. The particular red wine is made from the Nebbiolo grape. The wine was fermented in steel casks, then matured in oak barrels. - Community Wine Reviews|
