Fontanafredda Barolo 2003

Member Review by Italian Wine Blog:

Deep ruby red, but a little dull and cloudy. Clean pronounced nose overwheling aromas of Strawberries. The palate showed wonderfully balanced tannins. Full bodied with a fruity palate and long but slightly aggressive finish. A suprisingly good effort from Fontanafredda in a bad year for Barolo. (SN - 10/07)

<p>This wine has ripe red fruit flavors with hints of cherry and mint. It has medium tannins yet is still soft and elegant in the mouth with a finish of tobacco, coffee, fruit and spice.&nbsp;</p>
