90 Points Wine Enthusiast

The editors at Wine Enthusiast have recently rated and reviewed our Freisa d’Asti Superiore. We are pleased to share this great news with you !

Our 2017 Arvelé obtained 90 points out of 100 !

“Aromas of French oak, stewed prune and baking spice shape the subtle nose.

This vintage is available for sale at the winery but also abroad ! Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
