Wine Wednesdays – Fontanafredda Serralunga D’Alba Barolo

Last week I had a delicious dinner at Quality Meats in midtown.  Midtown on a Saturday night….bleh I know, but it was worth the trek uptown!  After slight snafus with a backup of service, we had a great meal all washed down with a yummy bottle of Barolo.
I’m not that familiar with Italian wines so I defaulted to my dining companions.  The wine was medium bodied, fruit forward, and light in tannins, aka my perfect trifecta!  A beautiful ruby color, with a nose of spices and vanilla.  The taste was very fruit heavy with notes of ripe cherries.  It paired perfectly with our yummy steaks.
