Vajra Langhe Freisa Kye 2018

MCF Rare Wine

Freisa, typically vinified into delightful, very light, highly aromatic reds reaches its absolute apex in Vajra's expression, to me, even better than the vaunted bottling of Mascarello.  Here, Freisa takes on the texture, depth and refinement of 1er Cru Burgundy - its at once, delicately compact on the palate, but highly expressive and has a complexity that seems almost bottomless.  There is a beauty to it that is ineffable and singular. It's pure.  It's supple.  It's insanely aromatic.  It's herbaceous.  It's structured.  It's Piedmont through and through, yet expressed in a totally unique way.  And, if you really want to have your mind blown, lay a few bottles down for 3-5 years, and let all of that complexity really blossom.
