On a recent Sunday evening, this Freisa paired impeccably with a plate of mushroom toasts—the earthy and woodsy character of the wine was a perfect complement to the dish’s deep flavors. Traditionally, Freisa is used to produce sparkling or sweet wines, but the Canone Inverso takes Freisa in another direction, giving us a wine with bright minerality balanced with a strong tannic structure. Whether it’s seared mushrooms or grilled steak, Wednesday night or Saturday afternoon, date night or dinner party, this feisty red will slide seamlessly into your summer lineup.

For the wines that I buy I insist that the winemaker leave them whole, intact. I go into the cellars now and select specific barrels or cuvées, and I request that they be bottled without stripping them with filters or other devices. This means that many of our wines will arrive with a smudge of sediment and will throw a more important deposit as time goes by, It also means the wine will taste better.
