Fontanafredda Barolo 2001

Our friend Richard tried a Fontanafredda Barolo recently and was very impressed.

Fontanafredda BaroloHis notes are:

“Wonderful. The bouquet was unlike anything I had experienced. Barolos are ‘top-end’ Italian wines from the northern Piedmont region. They’re made with Nebiollo grapes, an odd varietal that only grows there. The bouquet was of flowers, licorice, earthy. Some say you can even smell the white truffles that grow there.”

We’ll have to be on the lookout for this.
