Crafted from the rarely seen Freisa grape, this is a must-have for wine geeks and enthusiastic neophytes alike. This grape has a long history in Piedmont, where it has been producing wines for centuries. Traditionally made in a slightly sweet style to balance the bitterness in the wine, today more ageworthy, balanced and dry versions - such as this one - undergo barrel ageing that creates elegant and focused wines with sour cherry, raspberry and cured meat tones. Enjoy with meat pies.
Tasting Note: Cherry and strawberry fruit mingle in this light-bodied red. Mild tannins cause enough friction, leaving a pleasant astringency on the finish. Drink now through 2020. Score - 88. (Bruce Sanderson, winespectator.com, 2017)
