Fontanafredda Barbera Briccotondo 2019
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbera|
The Fontanafredda Barbera Briccotondo is aged partly in new barrels made of oak from Allier, and partly in large Slavonian oak casks. It refines in wood barrels for approximately five months, and is bottled in late spring. 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 combines with great fruit character and crisp freshness, culminating in a long, tasty finish on the palate.
A perfect match for starters, cured meats and a variety of fresh and mature cheeses.
This red is light and fruity, offering cherry, raspberry and a touch of earth. Modest length. Drink now.
