RASPBERRY, LEATHER, BLACK PEPPERCORN, BIG & PRETTY A close relative to Nebbiolo, Freisa displays similar aromas of tobacco, leather, and floral notes, while presenting distinctively more fruit forward with an enticingly bitter edge. This age worthy example showcases layered aromatics of violet perfumes, wet leather, and peppery spice. Bright on the palate with taut tannic structure, tart raspberry and red currant give way to red plum, blackberry, and a dusty minerality on the long and lingering finish. This is a serious wine! Serving Suggestion: Creamy truffle risotto. Red wine braised lamb shanks served over a bed of buttery cauliflower mash. Venison ragù with polenta.
