Cortese and Chardonnay
TENUTA FORESTO are young vignerons from Nizza Monferrato in the heart of the UNESCO site of Piedmont region. They made their dream come true and created a place where they can grow their own grapes and make their own wine.
Thier vineyards are hand-grown and the grapes that they get are simply escorted to the cellar, without the aid of any additives. In their farm they search for a holistic approach and they maintain a holistic and low impact ecosystem.
They mainly produce Barbera, Moscato, Cortese and Chardonnay.
Their vines vary from ten to seventy years old, exposure is mostly south to south-west, with tufa (limestone) throughout, with some clay and chalk (limestone again) mixed in.
Inspiration comes from the local winemaking tradition and they experiment maceration and fermentation in bottle.
