FREISA Az. Ag. 499
Style: GUTSY RED
Main characteristic: DARK & EARTHY
Dark fruit, loads of structure and big, grainy tannins. A fine example of a lesser-known but deliciously chewy and savoury grape from Piemonte. Freisa is a genetic cousin of Nebbiolo, hence the structure, but it tends to have more heft and plummy fruit behind the tannin, and an earthier, more robust character.
