This is everything we look for in a vino da tavola. This year it is made entirely of Freisa from young vines planted over Asti’s soft, sandy soils. The grapes spent two months on skins, before being pressed off to vats to rest. As one might expect, this is a little lighter and brighter than previous vintages, with flavours of red cherry and bitter herbs framed by some neat tannins. The kind of wine one might dream of finding at a simple trattoria in Piedmont’s countryside.
