Natalie's Score: 95/100

A gorgeous northern Italian red wine made from the Nebbiolo grape. This Barolo offers aromas of black cherry, violets, truffles and smoke. A long, lingering finish. Needs more cellar time. Decant 2 hours. Pair with truffle-accented dishes and wild game meats.

Barolo food pairings: roast duck, venison striploin, roast turkey, grilled game sausages.

Reviews and Ratings

Proprietà In Fontanafredda 2013 Barolo is bright and intense with juicy cherry, pink florals and stony mineral flavours on the palate. Tannins are firm and structured. Nice now, better in two years when the wine has had more time to evolve and begin to show its best. Showing nicely now. - 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.
