Today we posted a geek wines post. And this evening Jeff passed on a new Wine Library podcast in which Gary V. tastes and describes Cascina Gilli's Vigna del Forno Freisa d'Asti 2007 and a wine from Languedoc-Roussillion. Click here to see it.
The Cascina Gilli Freisa is available at WL for $18.98.
Gary called the Freisa a "nerd" wine -- "geek" in others words -- and also likens it to a lumberjack and the Flintstones. You had to be there.
I'll say this: the wine will show better in several weeks, since it came into the country very recently. The rough edges will definitely soften.
Try it, you'll like it.
