As it is clearly evident in any map of Barbaresco region, Fausoni is just located outside the town of Neive; consequently, the wine is a fine balance of elegance, bouquet and concentration, typical characteristics of this area.

Wine SpectatorShades of spice augment the cherry and medicinal herb flavors in this savory red. A firm line of dusty tannins holds court on the finish despite the relatively open texture. Best from 2019 through 2033. 400 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastBalsamic aromas of menthol, eucalyptus and new leather lead the nose of this wine, along with a whiff of oak-driven spice. On the firm, linear palate, espresso and mocha notes accent raw red berry fruit while assertive, close-grained tannins grip the finish.
