Casa Freschi Nebbiolo 2015

David Freschi is the son of Italian parents who emigrated from the Veneto region to Australia in the 1950s. His Nebbiolo is a combinatoin of 10 clones on a variety of different rootstocks planted in limestone based soil. The grapes are foot crushed. fermented with wild yeasts and left to age in seasoned French oak puncheons. It’s all strawberry and white pepper on the nose, while the palate features rosehip, red berries and rather tame tannins. There’s a lovely fine, sandy texture on the finish.
