Fontanafredda Barolo 2004, Piedmont
Community Reviews (1)
I should have known better than to trust a $28 Barolo.
Light-medium weight, fruity (cranberry, sour cherries), slightly hot & very dry (as is to be expected from young nebbiolo)...very little character.
Drank it with a selection of meats and cheeses (a good pairing with tannic wines as the protein softens the tannin) and it went down just fine. This would go down much better with a few years of cellar taming.
But for $30 it's barely "Barolo". You'd be better off spending your $30 on an upper-scale Chianti or Merlot say, rather than this down-scale Barolo.
Decent wine...not worth the price.
