Still has a rustic and earthy Italian edge that makes one ponder. Find this if you can.

Drinks like if a Turley Zinfandel lost 4% alcohol. The high acid is a perfect pairing for the cheese and ham at hand

Not sure on vintage. Nicely positioned between Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo. Crunchy bright red fruit, solid structure and tannin. Slightly short finish. More food versatile than a Pinot but far more accessible than Nebbiolo.

Very reminiscent of their Barolo. A serious Freisa with elegance and intensity. Rare & special stuff.

Langhe Freisa DOC 2012, 13%. Lovely ruby color, very clear. Herbaceous nose, with a bit of violet flower. Extreme acidity that "cuts your tongue" and very strong tannins. Will be better in time.
