As the ghosts and goblins were roaming the streets last night looking for treats, I was at a friend’s home enjoying my own Halloween treat.
I watched with great anticipation as my friend decanted a1996 Fontanafredda Barolo Lazzarito. Made with 100% Nebbiolo grapes, this fabulous wine was the color of dark brick. It had aromas of Bing cherry, plums, licorice and pepper. We tasted dark cherry, subtle spices and licorice. It was soft and balanced with no tannins. This is a wine to drink now…and we did!
Don’t forget to turn your clocks back tonight!
