BLACKBERRY & KIRSCH, AMARO HERBS, DUSTY ALMOND With aromatics bolstered by Freisa’s gleamingly red, floral inclinations, this Barbera-driven blend is dense, dark, elegant, and very food friendly, hailing from half-century old vines in the heart of Barbaresco country. Vermouth-like herbal fragrances, leather, and toasted almond add intrigue and make this a perfect companion for game and wintry fare. Nebbiolo fans take note. Serving Suggestion: Roast duck w/ balsamic-prune sauce, grilled radicchio & Polish potato pancakes w/ dill & sour cream. Gnocchi.
