Fontanafredda Barolo di Serralunga d'Alba DOCG 2007

Member Review by EMark:

Light passes through the pretty color in the glass. Fairly intense nose--woody and mushroom aromas. Medium bodied in the mouth. Some fruit flavors, but not overwhelming. Significant acid and tannin which suggest that this one has a way to go, but there does not seem to be much to develop, here. US$28.99 at Costco in 2012.
