The producer

Founded by current owner Aldo Pola’s father, Franco, in 1969, the Fontanabianca estate has always had strong links with the Neive village of Barbaresco. The family owns two single vineyards in Neive – Cru Bordini and Serraboella – in which Nebbiolo thrives and produces fragrant and elegant examples of the region and variety year after year.

The wine

Sourced from vineyards in the village of Neive and vines with prime southern and western exposure, Fontanabianca’s generic Barbaresco is fermented in stainless steel tanks before being matured in large oak barrels for 10-12 months. The finished wine is elegant, juicy and harmonious, and provides a delicious entry-point to a stunning area’s wines.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
