Freisa del Monferrato, Oreste Buzio - 2022

Item # 27715 750mL

Fresh and delightful, Freisa is ideal for all who love easy, fruity, lighter red wines. Bright strawberry and raspberry dominate the palate, confirming the jubilant berry aromas in the glass. A touch of dark spice roughens the texture a bit. Serve cool with rare meats, charcuterie, and sweet peppers with cheese. This wine has no oak contact and was vinified in stainless steel.
