2018 Tenuta Foresto 'Favonio' Vino Bianco

Piedmont, Italy

Made from Moscato Bianco, Francesco and girlfriend Pauline combine complete love and care for their land with experimentation in the cellar, to produce this stunning Favonio. Made with 100% Moscato Bianco grapes, grown in predominantly limestone soil. The grapes spend between 5/6 days on skins in concrete, then racked in to 700L oak barrel. The wine is bottled in spring and release after couple of months in bottle. A clean, powerful yet delicate orange. The effect of the limestone and skin contact is so evident through the stone fruit flavour, all whilst maintaining it's crisp, fresh and clean feel. Pink grapefruit salad.

About the maker

Francesco Pozzobon and girlfriend Pauline, together manage their dream farm in an area that is known for growing Barbera due to the micro climate conditions.

With 8 hectares of land and around 6 hectares dedicated purely for vines. The age of the vines vary from around ten to seventy years old, with primarily barbera, but also cortese, moscato and chardonnay. All of the grapes are hand picked and farmed organically following the Fukuoka method. Francesco follows the hard lines of natural winemaking with no filtration before bottling, wild yeasts and no additives nor sulphites at any stage. To quote Francesco, 'inspiration comes surely from the local winemaking tradition and we experiment some maceration and fermentation in bottle'.
