2019 Biccotondo Barbera Piemonte DOC, Fontanafredda
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Excellent with pasta, particularly with a cheese based sauce, or meaty pizzas and pan fried or barbecued red meat.
This is a ruby-red wine with purple highlights. 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 merges with the fruit, while a crisp freshness provides a long, tasty finish.
