  • 2015 Giuseppe Rinaldi Freisa Langhe - Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Langhe DOC (6/30/2020)
    This has come into its own nicely since the first time I had it. Forest berry and ripe cherry fruit, violets, tar, and licorice on the nose. Ripe fruit (for freisa), and floral on the palate, with the tar and savory notes adding to the whole. It does show the vintage character, but in this case I think it helps the variety. Medium bodied with snappy, crunchy fruit with good underlying acidity. It has fine tannins for Freisa, but still a little chewy around the edges. This has more finesse than most fresia and has a great mix of fruit, acid, soil and savory notes. This is my preferred style of fresia, and alongside Fabio Alessandira's is my favorite Freisa. Drinking at peak. Delicious with a hamburger and fresh tomatoes tonight. 91 (91 pts.)
