Natalie's Score: 91/100

Classic Italian red wine with racy acidity for many dishes. Complex and layered with dark spices and black fruit. An attractive scent of smoke on the nose of this full-bodied Italian red wine. Some grip on the palate from tannins, but this can be helped with 1-2 hours of decanting. Pair with a rare filet mignon.

Barbera D'alba food pairings: meat lovers pizza, pork tenderloin, Mexican dishes, grilled sausage.

Reviews and Ratings

Fontanafredda Raimonda (2015) is am elegant, single-vineyard juicy red Barbera made with grapes from vines planted in the Langhe hills region of Italy. Well-balanced fruit to zesty acidity, this is a beautiful food wine with a perfect pairing to veal parmesan. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty 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.
