100% Freisa 

An offspring of Nebbiolo, Freisa was historically used to augment the already noble structure of Nebbiolo wines thanks to the former’s thick skin. The grape variety’s name comes from the Latin fresia, meaning strawberry, and one sip makes this association clear. 

A noteworthy floral character gives way to perfectly ripened strawberry mitigated by stony minerality,
reliable acidity, and hints of white pepper. A textbook example of still Freisa made in a style that balances
rusticity with finesse. Think homemade strawberry-rhubarb pie. YUM! 

Pair this with Charcuterie and medium-aged cheeses. Thanks to its bright red fruit, somewhat spiced profile, and fine tannins, this wine also pairs brilliantly with mild Indian cuisine, curry dishes, barbequed meats, and burgers.

The singular wines of La Miraja have heretofore been impossible to find in the United States. The estate is nestled within the original castle of Castagnole Monferrato, constructed in the 11th century and retrofitted to serve as a cellar in the 1400s. In this armory-turned-cellar, Eugenio Gatti turns out Barbera d’Asti, Grignolino, and his fabled Ruché. A seventh-generation viticulturist, Eugenio personally tends to the oldest vineyard of Ruché in Castagnole Monferrato, the original birthplace of Ruché. It is here that Eugenio Gatti devotes his life’s work to producing 840 transcendent cases of wine each year.
