You taste like strawberries

Brezza “Tenuta Migliavacca” 2005 Freisa (Piedmont) – I love the exuberant fizz sometimes found in freisa, but this is a bit much for the unwary, and of the four people it’s served to, two reject it out-of-hand. That caveat aside, I still love it, though the XXXL froth comes with its burden of volatile acidity, which somewhat masks the neon strawberry zing. In no universe could this be called a serious wine. But why would you want to? (4/09)
