TASTING NOTE: Fontanafredda's Eremo 2016 is a full-bodied smoky, earthy with bright red cherry, leather and sweet tobacco leaf flavours on the palate. Great acidity for food on this well-priced 60% Barbera and 40% Nebbiolo red wine blend from the Langhe region in Piedmont. Decant 1-2 hours prior to pouring with grilled game meats. Enjoy now and pair it with game meats. Drink date: 2019-2025. Score - 90 (nataliemaclean.com, March 15, 2019) Price $ 19.95
