Wine gift set: award-winning Barbaresco wine from Neive in wooden presentation box

The wine

This wine comes from the Fausoni cru (MGA) in Neive – one of the three most important areas in the Barbaresco DOCG. With a full body and complex flavours, it shows the full strength and expression of ripe Nebbiolo. The Fausoni cru vineyard sits on the slope of the hill west of Neive. The grapes are harvested – always by hand – in mid-October, just before the weather turns really cold and a thick fog covers the mountains. The grapes are fermented for fourteen days in the cellar. Fabrizio Francone, the winemaker, matures this wine in French oak for twenty-four months.

Tasting notes

This Francone Barbaresco Fausoni offers a medium ruby colour. On the nose it has pronounced aromas of bramble, redcurrant, nutmeg, coconut, chocolate, liquorice, dried blackberries, prune, forest floor, tobacco, and leather. In the mouth, you can feel the signature powerful tannins of Nebbiolo. Each sip is full of redcurrant and plums, dark chocolate, liquorice and forest floor. Expect a long finish.
