2013 Cascina Fontana Barolo

2013 Cascina Fontana Barolo

Medium to full-bodied, but deep and muscular with that clichéd ‘tar and roses’ thing, plum and dark cherry, some black liquorice and mint.'

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Complex and harmonious on the palate, with the right balance between fruit, tannin and acidity. This is a complex and austere wine that is incredibly rich in every way. Though the colour is never deep, the wine has great profundity and concentration with a balance of tannin and acidity that, initially, gives it a character that is hard, unrevealing, even austere.

  • REVIEWS

    'In terms of style, this is so ‘classic’ and right in my wheelhouse. Medium to full-bodied, but deep and muscular with that clichéd ‘tar and roses’ thing, plum and dark cherry, some black liquorice and mint. The tannin is thick and mouth-coating, but not aggressive, acidity perfectly pitched and sweet orange-juicy, and there’s a robust tobacco and black tea finish of fine length. Do yourself a favour? 94+ Points.'
