A rustic and intact expression of Cortese, decisive and full of taste. An intense and mature aroma and a sip of apricot and peach. For the Leuto the grapes are de-stemmed and placed in concrete tanks, where they remain in contact with the skins for about three weeks and during which they carry out part of the spontaneous fermentation, all without temperature control. Depending on the need, 3-4 pumping over or manual punching down per day are carried out. After racking, the refinement takes place in oak tonneau for about eight months and then another two in the bottle. Without clarification, filtration and addition of sulfur dioxide, in Leuto it is the fifty-year-old vineyards that tell us the story.
* Macerated Wine - Orange Wine
Variety: Cortese 100%
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 .
