Fontanafredda La Rosa 2005

Easy to sink your teeth into... 93 Points

"Subliminal or not, it does smell of roses, along with vanilla oak, spice, cherry and liquorice. It’s a smooth and silky compote of fruit and oak with plenty of length, but not the distinguished level that the La Villa attains. It’s more forward and plump, almost cuddly for a Barolo and very easy to sink your teeth into – a fleshy pleasure style rather than a cerebral one, if you’ll indulge me for a moment."
