Freeman Rosso Hilltops 2017

$20.00 inc. GST

A wine made for la Dolce Vita… It smacks of briar and sun-ripe red berries over an umami 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.

Freeman Corvina Rondinella Corona 2016 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.

Value, style, drinkability. It’s a simple pitch. It’s a fresh, young, fruit-driven red of character and style. It’s well-packaged, well-made and satisfying. It sits on the light side of medium-weight, which is why it drinks so easily and so well. Cherries of various description; subtle leather and spice notes; perhaps some dried herbs. It works a treat. Alcohol: 13.5%; Drink : 2019 – 2022.
