Casa Freschi Nebbiolo 2016

A statement wine, particularly with its coursing ropes of grippy tannin and high rose petal and earthy perfume. The quality of fruit seems to sing here, showing plenty of layers and interest overall. It drinks firmly and with chew, so time in decanter seems apt, likewise a cellar. A very savoury red wine with strong character of the variety, done well. 94pts Mike Bennie, WBM Jan/Feb 2020
