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.
|Vineyard:||1 ha, Planted in 2000|
|Aging:||Aged 12-18 months in stainless steel and cement tanks before bottling, aged 6 months in bottle before release|
I want you to realize once and for all: Even the winemaker does not know what aging is going to do to a new vintage; Robert Parker does not know; I do not know. We all make educated (hopefully) guesses about what the future will bring, but guesses they are. And one of the pleasures of a wine cellar is the opportunity it provides for you to witness the evolution of your various selections. Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
