SORÌ DI GIUL

FREISA D’ASTI D.O.C. SUPERIORE

In Piedmont a wine place named Sorì stands for the vineyards better exposed to the sun, those helped by the climate. Giul is Giulia Alleva’s family nickname and she loves to describe this wine as a “Feminine Nebbiolo”. A famous Freisa, rich in aroma and structure, which had been lost over the years. The original vineyard is the Mossetti estate: its soil is a mix of clay and sand near the surface with root systems that manage to balance out the plant and enrich the phenolic ripeness of the grapes.
