Kye is like the value option to GD Vajra Barolo. Freisa and Nebbiolo are cousins, but I’d argue distant cousins. This is chunkier, with equal power but darker - less the bright red fruit.

It’s complex with dark cherries and dried strawberries.

I adore Freisa. If you have not already, I would highly recommend you try Brovia’s Freisa “La Villerina Secca”. It’s such a wonderful expression.

Light and fizzy on the tongue with earth and herbal notes that mimic the nose, long lingering tannins. Beautiful chilled! — 6 months ago

Austere. Needs a good decant for tannins to settle. Nice red fruit and lots of acid. Serious stuff — a month ago

Not a lot of experience with 100% Freisa with age, this was killer. The wild and rustic tannins have shown some integration, yet their grainy appeal is still there. Crushed strawberries and fruit leather mixed up with alpine amaro herbs, sweet and bitingly bitter at the same time. Earthy. Crushed our pizza dinner at Cotogna — 4 months ago

Fabulous. A little harsh on opening. Evolved nicely over a few hours. Even better the next day. I drank with a slight chill on the bottle. 😍 — 7 months ago

What a special wine! I don’t know that I’ve ever had anything this good for $16. Bright, floral, nuanced, well-balanced, and fun. My wife spent a good 10 minutes giving me shit for buying a half case of wine when we were already pretty well stocked. Then she had a glass of this and melted completely. Good thing I bought two! — 3 days ago
