La Morella ‘Corte dei Merli’ 2018

Estate: The Ferretti family has been cultivating grapes in the middle of the Tortona Hills in eastern Piemonte since the early 1900’s. The estate has been organic since 1985, when Enio Ferretti took the reins. He is dedicated to the native grapes of the region; Barbera, Dolcetto, Freisa, Cortese and Timorasso.

Tasting Notes: Dark garnet in colour, with aromas of raspberry, strawberry, rose hip tea, roasted chestnut, licorice, trace of peppery spice. Grippy tannins and tangy acidity flank black cherry, raspberry, strawberry, pomegranate. Hazelnut, black pepper, red currant infuse the smoky earth mineral finish. A succulent, vivacious Freisa.
