Monferrato DOC Freisa
The canon is a musical structure where different voices and instruments express the same melody at overlapping intervals. The inverse canon is instead a musical structure in which the leading voice performs a melodic line and the follower performs it with contrary motion.
Many people see Freisa as a small and lively wine, to be drunk young. The name is therefore music in words, because the wine is the inverse of the canonical style (understood as traditional, accepted) of Freisa.
Canone Inverso by Paolo Maurensig is also the title of the book that Pietro particularly loves.

It is a pure Freisa that subverts the more "canonical" form (young and lively wine) to make it a wine of great structure and character.
Ruby red colour. Intense nose of red fruit enriched with spiced and slightly herbaceous notes, while in the mouth it has a good balance, soft and fresh in closing with non-aggressive tannins.
While dining you will discover its ability to accompany both second courses as well as fruit and chocolate.
