Freisa "La Piveta", Cascina Roera 2017 (Piedmont, Italy)

This is 100% Freisa, which is thought to be a parent grape of Nebbiolo, from 25 year old organic vineyards, hand harvested and fermented with native yeast in concrete where it stays on the skins for a month, then gets moved to old barrel for a year before bottling unfiltered with almost no sulfur added. Rustic and vibrant with crushed strawberries, rose petals and mossy forest floor notes and silky structure on a medium bodied frame.
