Matt’s review:

Fontanafredda’s 2013 Barolo is one of the best super value Barolo’s available at the LCBO. At $29.90 it offers exceptional value and don’t let the discount price point steer you away as this Barolo is delicious! Primed and ready for immediate enjoyment, it’s very well structured with fine integrated tannins that are supported by the fresh acidity and delicious balance of fruit and rustic flavours. Fontanafredda’s Barolo is a fantastic option for gifting, short to medium term cellaring, and for enjoying with a wide range of meals, from creamy pasta, braised beef, blue cheese, or simply on its own. Very aromatic, it has a beautiful nose with prune, cherry, sweet spices, black tea, and leather. A beautiful Barolo, the King of Wines, and at a very reasonable price. Tasted October 2017. 91 points.
