La Villerina Secca Langhe Freisa 2017

I don’t hide the fact that I’m a massive fan of Brovia and their Freisa which they produce in a dry, still style is among my favorite values in all of Piedmont. The grapes for this wine come from the Villero cru and are aged exclusively in stainless steel. Production is extremely minuscule with under 1000 bottles made per year however, tracking some down is well worth the effort. The 2017 version has aromas of dark blackberries, roses, and tar while the palate is packed with strawberries, mulberries, blueberries and dried herbs. Impressive structure with mouth-drying tannins and snappy acidity leading to a long, tongue-smacking finish. Capable of aging? Yes, and probably would be an interesting one to follow over the next five to ten years. That being said, these are really meant to be consumed on the younger side while we wait for the Barolo’s to mature 😉. This bottle was paired with the “kamikaze” lasagna we got last night from Au Courant which, as it happens, was also my source for this bottle. — 11 days ago

This is good. More open and approachable than the Rinaldi fresia from a couple months back. Dark in the glass and a little hot at first. Strawberry perfume, licorice, big tannins. — 15 days ago

Langhe Freisa 2017

Austere. Needs a good decant for tannins to settle. Nice red fruit and lots of acid. Serious stuff — 4 months ago

La Selva di Moirano Monferrato Freisa 2006

30 minutes in and the dark and dried fruit opened, mixing well with the soft tannins. First time having a 14yo Freisa, and will definitely buy more. — 6 days ago

Cantina Bartolo Mascarello

Langhe Freisa

Having found the Freisa from Bartolo Mascarello in a wine shop has been a bit of a shock, but I recovered quickly as soon as I opened it.
It starts with that little fizz, but once it opens up it gets broad, complex, deep and still nonetheless fresh.
Extremely long and comforting
