Fontanabianca’s is a relatively new and exciting name in Barbaresco . The small, meticulously run estate has 15 hectares of ideally positioned, organically cultivated vines located in the famous commune of Nieve.
No systemics, grass cover and only organic mixtures are used. Mostly calcareous and chalk soils, the vines yield beautifully concentrated fruit with perfect balance. Founded by Franco Pola and Ottavio Ferro in 1969, today the estate is run by Aldo Pola with the help of Beppe Caviola as wine making consultant.
The wines are precise, deeply fruited, posses exceptional balance and are distinctly Piemontese. The Dolcetto is fun and joyous, Barbera delivers depth of flavour with harmony and the Nebbiolo is a mini scaled Barbraesco. The jewel in the Fontanabianca crown is the single vineyard, old vine Barbaresco ‘Sori Burdin’. The south facing vineyard is on chalks soils planted to the Lampia & Michet clones of Nebbiolo.
The wine is hand harvested, and aged in French barriques for 15 months and the result is an aromatically pure, texturally dense, finely balanced Barbaresco that is amongst the best wines in Piemonte.
