Vintage Characteristics: Freisa is a cousin grape of Nebbiolo.  After its slumber in large botti for one year, this wine emerges from the glass with blackberry and raspberry fruit, a graphite minerality, and precise, focused acidity that adds both weight and balance to the final wine. Tannins are straightforward but velvety ripe. It will pair well with a wide variety of meals, especially braised meats with polenta (for winter) or different types of salumi (for summer).

Pairing Suggestions:  TThis wine finds its best matches at the table, with appetizers of sliced meats such as prosciutto, salami and lardo; also Alba beef tartare and vitello tonnato. The wine is also good with pasta and pizza, simple red meat dishes in general, or with seasoned cheeses.
