This wine WILL be stunning a few years—the 2016 is very closed up (I’d popped 3 over the wkend).

Not as tannicly aggresive as 2012, a little more femminine vintage for Mascarello Freisa with more floral, violets and chalky cherry deliciousness. This really shows how diverse and magical Freisa can be. Vineyards are in Castiglione Falletto close to Monprivato. 🌹🍒🍇

Like, not love. Wishing I could get the perfect vivace Freisa to wash down my salumi. Slightly bitter, nice acid, maybe a bit rich. V. good.

Damn delicious and not often seen in the U.S. Holding onto it's youth and freshness nicely while showing beautiful floral, herbal and spice driven qualities

Tastes like salty tannins and huge acid. Even harsher tannins tasted next to 2011 monprivato. Does open up a tad after an hour And unfolds raspberry salty juiciness when you give it a chance. I have tasted multiple bottles and it does give me a different impression every time.
