GRAPE VARIETY 100% Freisa



DESCRIPTION Freisa, is a lesser known variety in spite of its close and ancient relationship to Nebbiolo. A history which has no rival when compared to more productive and easier varieties to grow. With its strong personality, Langhe DOC Freisa Kyè pays tribute to this noble variety cultivated in Langa. 



VINEYARD San Ponzio Vineyard, Comune of Barolo. With an elevation between 390-410 meters above sea level (1,280 – 1,345 feet), a clay rich soil and an assortment of vines selected by Aldo Vaira in an old vineyard planted by his grandfather.



FARMING Vajra has always believed in sustainable farming and keeps the turf natural and green in the vineyard. No irrigation is used while thinning is decided according to the vintage. 



HARVEST AND WINEMAKING The optimal moment for harvesting Freisa is constituted by alternating warm Autumn days and cool nights: generally during the second half of October. e destemming and elimination of the most acidic parts along with the greenest tannins, is an essential practice for this variety. e rather long fermentation process allows the grape tannins to transmigrate into the wine. For this quite wild variety, the second fermentation, malolactic, is also just as important. An aging of 12-18 months depending on the vintage, starts in Slavonian oak barrels and barriques, giving necessary balance to the wine. 



TASTING NOTES Deep ruby red color. Nose of red berries, tobacco, roses, and white pepper with hints of hay and wild herbs. Full bodied with balanced acidity and alcohol, this wine is sapid and rich with a long nish of black fruits and spices.
