Favonio is a 100% Moscato Bianco grown in clayey soil, vinified dry and macerated. The grapes spend about 6 days in concrete in contact with the skins without temperature control. After racking, Favonio ages in oak barrels until spring, when the wine is bottled and left to rest for a few more months. A clean, decisive but at the same time delicate taste, thanks to the aromatic heritage of Moscato which is still present but not dominant. The effect of the clayey soil and maceration is evident in its bursting, citrusy, clean and juicy sip.
* Macerated Wine - Orange Wine
In Nizza Monferrato, in the heart of the Asti hills, Tenuta Foresta was born in 2016. The company is housed in a farmhouse in a state of semi-abandonment where the vineyards had managed to escape the specter of intensive agriculture. An amusement park for Francesco, a Venetian in love with Barbera, and Pauline: Tenuta Foresta is housed in an ecosystem of woods, ponds and vineyards where the ideal conditions are created to close the circle of their vision of viticulture, which is synergistic and holistic. Inspired by Fukuoka's theories, they practice circular agriculture which is tiring but which they themselves call intuitive. The rule is to support natural balances, already intrinsically perfect, making use of common sense science and technology, and always maintaining an experimental approach. The same happens in the cellar: the effort and the innovation are always addressed in a mechanical key, never synthetic, in order not to frustrate everything that has been asked for and has been received from the land during the year .
