My goal was for a very drinkable, fresh and bright expression of Freisa which I’ve been getting to know over the years.
"My goal was for a very drinkable, fresh and bright expression of Freisa which I’ve been getting to know over the years. We direct pressed 20% was of the fruit to allow there to be some more balance and harmony between the tannins and all the bright fruit and flower that this variety has to offer. The 2021 vintage was also hot, so I’m even more pleased with how this first vintage turned out."
The wine is named after my first son, Gioacchino, who at home we call GioGio.
