2 reviews for Fontanafredda Silver Label Barolo 2016

  1. JS

    A very polished, fine-tannined Barolo with energy and focus. Plenty of plum, strawberry and cedar character. It’s full-bodied, yet tight and refined. Racy finish. A beauty. One of the best I have had from here. Drink after 2022 and onwards.

  2. WAS

    Notes of tar and licorice underline this wine’s bright red-cherry and orange-peel flavors. Mid-weight in body, with an open-knit structure, the wine’s appeal is in its mouthwatering acidity and juicy fruit.
