Boschis Freisa 'Bosco della Cicale' 2018

'If I had to name one superstar under the radar estate in Piedmont it might very well be Francesco Boschis. The wines are intense, delicious and reliably outstanding. Even better, because Boschis is based in Dogliani and works predominantly with Dolcetto, prices remain remarkably fair for this level of quality.' Antonio Galloni Vinous

'Every time I taste the Francesco Boschis’s wines, I can’t believe how this estate manages to remain so far under the radar. Once again, Boschis has turned out a superb set of wines loaded with personality. I can’t recommend these wines highly enough.' Wine Advocate

Finding a straight Freisa can be tricky, and finding one of this quality and at this price point is almost impossible! Plantings of Freisa in Piemonte date back to at least the 18th century and it is believed that that the grape has a parent-offspring relationship with the most famous variety from the region - Nebbiolo.

During the Summer and early Autumn months we cannot get enough of this delicious, light red.  Every year we travel to the huge Italian wine fair Vinitaly in April and tasting the new release Freisa from Boschis is our favourite tradition.  It never fails to put a smile on our face and this year's wine is no exception.  The Boschis labels always hint at what lies inside, and the wild strawberries on the Freisa label are no exception. One of our favourite wines from Italy.
