LANGHE DOC FREISA LICE
E’ LA STORIA
DI UNA FAMIGLIA

Our first Freisa vineyard belonged 

to our uncle Felice, always known as Lice

this wine could have no other name

Hand-picked during the first ten days of October.

VINIFICATION

The freshly-harvested grapes are crushed and destemmed immediately. Fermentation is spontaneous in stainless steel tanks at 24°-25° C. Racking takes place after about 8 days. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation takes place in steel tanks. Cold tartaric stabilisation. The wine is bottled at summer’s end and then bottle-aged for about a further 8 months.

WHEN

While young, this wine is a perfect match for someone with a crusty temperament, but it mellows with time to pamper the senses.

HOW

Store in a dark, dry place at constant temperature below 20° C. Serve at between 14°-16° C in a rounded glass 
to appreciate its transparent colour and to allow for oxygenation and the release of aromas.

CLASSIC PAIRING

Bread, cooked salame and Langhe Freisa: unpretentious and perfect. It’s a perfect pairing with bollito misto and its sauces. Our Freisa is also perfect with polenta and sausage ragù
or Savoy-style potatoes.

UNUSUAL PAIRING

Peking duck for an Asian-inspired dinner. Pappardelle with a creamy ragù of hare–a perfect marriage. And with a dessert?
A red fruit tart is a perfect match, or perhaps you could try it 
over pears with a little cinnamon.
