Casa Freschi La Signora 2014

David Freschi keeps delivering quality wines. Take his latest La Signora, made from 70% nebbiolo with the balance equal parts of shiraz and malbec from the Langhorne Creek vineyard, planted in 1972. Nebbiolo was a later planting and, while it may seem too hot for the variety, La Signora proves it’s not. Dried sour cherry, fading rose petal and exotic spices dominate the nose with gently persistent tannins driving the palate. The flavours are classic nebbiolo, with the shiraz and malbec adding depth.
