Freisa

Freisa is a red wine grape varietal grown in the Piedmont wine region of north-west Italy, primarily planted in the Monferrato and Langhe areas, but can also be found in the provinces of Biella and Turin. Freisa is a high cropping grape varietal with blue-black berries and with bunches growing in an elongated shape. There are references in official documents as early as the 16th century, but it was in the 1880's when it became one of the prime grapes in Piedmont, as its increased plantings was inspired by the vine’s resistance to downy mildew.
Ampelographers believe that the Freisa grape likely originated in the hills between Asti and Turin. Recent DNA profiling has reviled Freisa as being a parent to the renowned Nebbiolo grape - the undisputed King of Piedmont.
