2005 Fontanafredda Briccotondo Barbera
This is a ruby-red wine with purple highlights. The nose is packed with black fruit, especially blackberries and plums, with slight spicy overtones hinting at black pepper and cinnamon. Sweet, soft tannins come together in a closely-woven texture that merges with the fruit, while a crisp freshness provides a long, tasty finish. This wine is a perfect match for starters, cured meats, and fresh and medium-mature cheeses.
