After a couple of days macerating on the skins and a short rest in vat, this beautiful expression of Freisa hits that wonderful sweet spot between rosato and rosso. A gorgeous shady of ruby in the glass, it pairs plush red fruits with varietal spice, making it the perfect wine for spring.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Nadia Verrua’s family has been making wines in the hills of Monferrato in the province of Asti for over a century.

Their ten hectares of fascinating local grape varieties are farmed organically, planted over soft, sandy slopes in Scurzolengo, Castagnole Monferrato and Montemagno. They also keep a large number of hazelnut trees and it is little secret that Nadia’s mum Teresa makes one of the best torta di nocciole in all of Piemonte.

In the simple, old fashioned cantina beneath the family’s home, the wines are made with simple tools and raised in a mixture of big old botti, vats and cement, with nothing added at any stage.

The results are rustic, charming wines which are full of life and encapsulate all that is great about Italian vino da tavola.
