Burlotto Langhe Freisa 2017

Burlotto's Freisa has a beautiful fragrance, perfumed with vibrant red fruits, liquorice and spice!

You almost feel like your biting into a blood plum, it has that slight astringency of the skin in a good way! As much as it has juicy, juby fruit, the vinosity is there. Of Burlotto’s entry level wines from 2017 this is the one that stood out, having the greatest harmony. Underneath the fruit a layer of earthiness adds complexity.

There is a certain rawness to the fruit that quickly comes together with a splash of air. I’ve had relatively few Freisa’s, this one’s a solid drink. Make sure to drink it at 16-18C

Why is this Wine so Yummy?

During his seventy-seven years as a winemaker (1850-1927), G.B. Burlotto’s accomplishments were rivaled only by those of Biondi-Santi and Vega Sicilia, as he achieved superstardom in a world dominated by French wines. Today, Burlotto has re-emerged as one of Piemonte’s great small producers, thanks to the brilliant and highly traditional winemaking of G.B.’s great-great-grandson, Fabio Alessandria.

He pioneered selling Barolo in bottle (not cask or demijohn), predating even Giacomo Conterno’s Barolo Monfortino. And as official supplier to the Royal House of Savoy—which once ruled Piemonte—he not only achieved personal fame, he made his village of Verduno as renowned as Serralunga or La Morra.

Where in the world does the magic happen?
