Italian wine and grape guide : Freisa


Freisa is a red grape cultivated in Piedmont. While mainly grown in Monferrato and the Langhe, Freisa can also be grown in the other parts of the region, and the name originates from “fresia”, a Latin word that means strawberry. Freisa grapes can be used to produce a range of red wines, varying from sweet and still to dry and sparkling. There are two different recognised varieties of Freisa, Freisa piccolo and Freisa grossa (Freisa piccolo being a small berried variety and Freisa grossa being larger berried)

Currently we do not stock any wine, but we think you might like one of these wines made with other grapes
