FREEMAN Rosso 2017

ROSSO CORVINA RONDINELLA 2017

FREEMAN ROSSO 2017

An easy-drinking Italian inspired red wine brimming with personality, flavour and texture. The unmistakable yellow capsule earmarks this wine for bistro dining and everyday enjoyment, not philosophical discussion.

 TASTING NOTES

A wine made for la Dolce VitaFREEMAN ROSSO 2017 smacks of briar and sun-ripe red berries over a savoury frame, that’s invitingly light-bodied and disarmingly mellow. Attractive generous berry flavours and soft persistent tannins combine to create this seductive easy drinking red that isn’t intended for cellaring.

WINEMAKING

FREEMAN Rosso Corvina Rondinella 2017 is a blend of the two northern Italian origin varieties classically used to make two popular red wines – Bardolino (Lake Garda) and Valpolicella (Verona).

Unlike the flagship FREEMAN Secco that relies on the addition of dried grapes to the fermentation, this savoury red blend is crafted solely from freshly harvested Corvina and Rondinella. After pressing, the individual varietal parcels are fermented in stainless steel and aged for 12 months in old oak barrels before blending to create a mellow yet savoury ‘drink now’ style.
