Fontanafredda Barolo 2016

Serralunga, Cuneo, Piedmont, ItalyThe wines of Barolo have steadily risen in price for some time now, and 40+dollars is now the cost of entry. The good news: you can still get honest, solid wines like this Fontanafredda. It's quite savoury and traditional in style, led by leather and packed with spice. It's firmly structured, as you'd expect, though the tannins are surprisingly fine-grained and yield with some protein. Perfect for the winter months with something from the slow cooker.Tasted: 13 November 2020Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices: BC 39.99 BCLS ON 45.00 LCBO QC 40.00 MB 49.99 Banville and Jones NS 45.99 NSLC Producer: FontanafreddaDistributors: Dandurand
