Frisino is a family-owned company based in Puglia, south of Italy. It has a long history and reputation of producing high quality extra virgin olive oil. It started to produce wines in 2018 by using indigenous grapes varieties from Puglia. Legami is one of its special collections where a rosato and a bianco are inspired by the women of the family, a mother and a daughter, two different souls, united by a unique and indissoluble bond. The labels are very chic and beautifully designed. Fresh and delicacy is the common style of both wines. ⁣

Frisino是位於意大利南部普利亞(Puglia)地區的家族式企業。其擁有生產高品質特級初榨橄欖油的悠久歷史和聲譽,並於2018年開始出品以普利亞原生葡萄所釀制的葡萄酒。Legami是其中一個系列,包括一款粉紅葡萄酒和一款白葡萄酒,靈感來源於兩母女,有著不可分割的家庭紐帶,但不同的內心世界。兩款酒標設計都十分漂亮、時尚。清爽和細膩的風格是這兩款酒的共同特色。

The Rosato is the mother in the Legami collection. It is made from 100% Primitivo (also known as Zinfandel in the U.S.), one of the signature native grapes from Puglia. The wine shows a pale salmon colour. It has an elegant nose of white flowers, strawberry, pomegranate, citrus, herbs, fruit candy with some sea breeze and mineral notes. On palate, it is tangy with medium plus level of acidity, light body with delicate red fruit flavours and a bitter citrusy aftertaste mingled with steely minerality. Tannin is almost invisible in this wine which makes it a fantastic wine to sip alone under the sun or pair with delicate and savouy foods such as sashimi and sushi. ⁣⁣

這款粉紅葡萄酒是系列中的“母親”。其以百分百 Primitivo葡萄(在美國又叫Zinfandel)釀制,是普利亞的最具代表的原生葡萄之一。此酒呈淺橘紅色,香氣優雅,白色花朵、草莓、紅石榴、柑橘、草本和水果糖外加些許海風的礦物氣息。入口感覺酸度中上,酒體較輕,伴隨清爽的檸檬和細緻的紅果味,餘韻帶有苦橙和金屬礦物感。此酒幾乎感覺不到單寧的存在,適合在陽光下淨飲,或配稱一些味道細緻的鮮美食物如:魚生和壽司等。

However, I do feel that there is more room to explore on this sapid and elegant wine, so I tried to match this wine with a number of different snacks and cuisines, some of the highlights include: shrimp cracker, Korean style of sea food pan cake, Japanese style of grilled mackerel. They all taste fantastically. But my favourite pairing is our home-made Poached Chicken served with Ginger and Spring onions in Oil. As the chicken’s flavour is delicate and only enhanced by the salty ginger and spring onions oil sauce, it actually needs a subtle wine to pair like this rosato.  Moreover, the herbal notes of the wine compliments very well with the ginger and spring onion flavours of the dish and make both the wine and dish more complex and enjoyable. Delicious!⁣

但我感覺此酒的發揮空間不止於此,所以嘗試搭配了不同的小食和菜肴,其中有不少亮點,包括:蝦片、韓式海鮮煎餅、日式燒鯖魚,都是十分美味的組合。但我的最愛是住家的白切雞配薑蔥蓉。由於白切雞的味道細膩,僅以薑蔥蓉提味,因此很適合佐以這類粉紅葡萄酒。而且,此酒中的草本植物味與薑蔥味道相互映襯,增添了酒和菜肴的美味及複雜度,確實好味道!
