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
Southwest exposure in front of the winery at hill bottoms. Elevation: 250 metres above sea level’
VINES AND SOIL
0.7 hectare: on average the vines are 20 years of age on Sant’Agata marl (marl layers with silt and clay content).
Hand-picked during the first ten days of October.
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.
Available format: 0.75 l
Alcohol content 12.5%-13.5% by volume (depending on the vintage)
Intense ruby red in colour.
Aromas of wine and fruit with notes recalling cherry, strawberry, raspberry and rose.
Crisp, fragrant, with moderate body balanced by correct tannins.
While young, this wine is a perfect match for someone with a crusty temperament, but it mellows with time to pamper the senses.
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.
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.
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.
