Very particular wine, strong, dark fruit, hyper long finish, hard to compare with anything known.
Not for everyone, but really enjoyable

Violets, blueberries, and brutal tannin. Quite nice until the tannins locked down after about a half hour of air. Would love to try this with some age.

AJ 90/100 - Rosso rubino fitto, naso complesso e fine con tabacco, frutti di bosco, rosa e viola, pepe, note balsamiche, in bocca grandissima acidità, tannino fine e raffinato con finale molto lungo. Ottimo vino da grande cantina: dicono che la Freisa possa essere la mamma del nebbiolo... Chissà ;)

Nose blocked by sulphur. Very good structure. Underneath; ripe-ish red fruit.
