2018 Freisa

Regular price

Definitely one for fans of Nebbiolo and Barolo to try!
Bartolomeo Borgogno founded this winery all the way back in 1761, making it perhaps the oldest known winery in the Barolo area! In 1976, a bottle of 1886 vintage Borgogno Barolo went under the hammer at a historical wine auction held in Turin and still holds the record for the most expensive bottle of Italian wine ever sold! I think we can safely say this winery has some history, but it also keeps evolving. As of 2019, all vineyards are certified organic. Now, onto the wine: the Freisa grape variety is an old relative of Nebbiolo, and there's not a lot of it around. Fresh red and dark fruits, a light colour, elegant and structural!
