Producer: Crotin  
Region: Piedmont, Italy  
Varietal: Freisa 
Year: 2018 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Inky dark ruby color, medium bodied with a balance of licorice and dark fruit notes and a typical varietal intensity balanced by fresh mineral lift." 

About the Varietal: 

"An ancient grape variety found in Italy’s northwestern region of Piedmont, particularly around Chieri, the Monferrato, and the Langhe, Freisa is the closest relative to Nebbiolo, aside from Nebbiolo Rosé. Genetic studies show that Freisa and Nebbiolo share a parent-offspring connection and, according to Ian D’Agata, Freisa is more likely Nebbiolo’s parent. This would explain their similarities, from the light ruby hue of their wines, to high tannins and acidity which lend to the wine’s ability to age." 

Alcohol: 13.5%
