2001 Fontanafredda Barolo, Piedmont Italy

Ok, the above picture is pretty pathetic but is the only one I could find online.  Hopefully I'm able to get my hands on a bottle to take a better picture of the label.  I ordered this wine at District the other night based on our server Justin's recommendation.  It was a great discovery.  Black cherries and rapsberries, dusty tannins, and nice acidity with a smooth finish.  Apparently this wine will age well too for another ten years or so.  It paired well with a pizza that Rachel was having that had fresh arugula and from what I have read also goes well with rich red meats.

The Fontanafredda winery is located in the Piedmont region in Italy and produces a large quantity of Barolo.  Wine growing region map.
