MONFERRATO FREISA D.O.C. LA FRISA
Alcoholic strength: 12%
This full-bodied wine, certified as denominazione di origine controllata (controlled designation of origin) is made from the grape variety Freisa, with vines grown on hillsides in the district of Maranzana and Cassine. This location has favourable height, exposure to sunlight and microclimate, enhancing the qualities of this masterpiece of fragrance and harmony.
A wine of excellent clarity, with a colour of intense, bright ruby red. Its bouquet is intense and relatively complex, with a distinctly floral character, and including notes of red fruits, in particular cherry, violet and peach jam. On the palate, it is lightly sparkling, warm and smooth. Its residual sugar content makes it very pleasant, and it forms an attractive contrast with the wine’s appreciable freshness.
This is a wine that can accompany all courses of a meal, including cured meats, first course dishes with sauces, vegetables, roast pork, and moderately seasoned cheeses. It is particularly successful when accompanying the classic Piedmont recipe of mixed fried specialities.
