Briccotondo Dolcetto Fontanafredda 2013
The historic estate of Fontanafredda conceals one or two little secrets — not least the hunting lodge to which its origins can be traced back to 1878. The property of the first King of Italy, it was not only a base for his hunting of the local game, but also for more, shall we say, earthy pursuits.
A clear, ruby-red wine with violet highlights. Its vinous bouquet is fruity, very intense and rather attractive and persistent. Nicely dry, well-balanced and velvety, it has a light almondy aftertaste.
FOOD MATCHING NOTE
A fine match for hot hors-d’oeuvres, pasta, vegetables and not overly-elaborate meat dishes.
