Fontanafredda Briccotondo Langhe 2010
To begin, this Piedmont red has to be aired for at least two hours, else it has a bitter, distinctly unpleasant, aftertaste. Once that caveat has been heeded, it's a reasonably austere blend of red cherry and plum, with a nice segue into an almond finish. $13.99 on sale, but available for as much as three dollars less elsewhere.
