2015 Langhe Freisa Coste dei Fre, Azienda Agricola 499, Piedmont

A single vineyard Freisa, and a step up, this is a brilliant wine from this tiny estate. Wild hedgerow and flowers soar from the glass, with incredible structure and length. Mineral, precise, and very long, this is a delight. And it ages brilliantly: older bottles we tried blew us away.

Azienda Agricola 499

499 refers to the high altitude of the vineyards of this estate, which compares to an altitude of 213m in Barolo. It’s the brainchild of vineyard manager Gabriele Saffrio and winemaker Mario Andrion, who’s also winemaker of Castello di Verduno. Their focus is two forgotten varieties: Freisa and Moscato, and they seek to make the purest expression possible of these two grape varieties. They succeed with flying colours: these are two delicious wines, that offer almost unrivalled value for money.
