Grape Variety
It is a native vine of Piemonte, adaptable to any type of soil. It can give medium-bodied wines, dry and characterized by fruity notes. Freisa wines always have an easy drinkability, thus being suitable for daily consumption; they have no aptitude for aging.
Terroir
Soils are quite varied on the surface, but all rest on a layer of Miocene marl (a variety of crumbling white tuff). The vineyards in the Albugnano area are characterized by a high average altitude and a higher rainfall than the average of the nearby hills. It is a micro-climate that favors the maintenance of a good level of acidity and an important aromatic development. The soils where the Freisa vineyard is cultivated are calcareous-clayey, in the Vezzolano basin, at an average height of 350 meters.
Uomo
The Binello family is engaged in a very complex agriculture: cultivation of vegetables, fruit plants (apricots, peaches and plums), breeding of thoroughbred cattle for slaughter, hospitality on farms and viticulture. Much attention has been given to enhancing the cultivation of grape varieties typical of this area of Monferrato, including Freisa.
Vinification and finishing
The soft pressing with de-stemming of the bunches generates a must that ferments at a controlled temperature for 7-8 days. After racking, the new wine ages for 4-5 months in steel containers. After bottling, the bottles rest for another two months before being marketed.
Tasting notes
Ruby in color, with faint purple reflections. On the nose you can feel the characteristic aromas of raspberry and red fruits. A wine with a fresh, slightly lively flavor. It has a slight tannicity. Long fruity and vinous aftertaste.
