Burlotto Freisa 2021
There's no understating the historical importance of the Burlotto estate. Founded in 1850 by Commendatore Giovan Battista Burlotto, the labels still bear the mark of the royal House of Savoy, who greatly favored Burlotto's wines. The winery retains many of its original methods - foot treading, indigenous yeast, and aging wine in large oak barrels A single plot is dedicated to the Freisa grape, located in the municipality of Roddi. According to Burlotto, Freisa is the "deepest, most barritone voice" of the Langhe reds. The 2021 vintage is noted for its depth and complexity with balsamic strawberry, moody cherry, and warm spices such as cinnamon.
