Scarpa (Antica Casa Vinicola Scarpa) La Selva di Moirano Monferrato Freisa 2005

$38.99

A close relative of Nebbiolo (eitiher its parent or child) and once the most highly-prized grape in the region, Freisa has lost ground to Nebbiolo partly because the latter demands all the best sites while Freisa is less picky about where it's grown. So farmers have spent a long time relegating it to less prime slopes and the grape yields correspondingly less striking wines. Scarpa shows us what Freisa can offer when treated with respect. This is a ferrous, dusty glass of cherries.

First time trying one of these Scarpa 2005 Freisa Secco. Has a clear tie to Nebbiolo (supposedly the father of it). No oak (aged only in stainless steel and bottle per website). Red fruits on the nose and palate. Clean minerals as well.
