Tenuta Foresto Favonio
Grapes: Moscato Bianco
Young Piemonte winemakers Pauline and Francesco of Tenuta Foresto follow the Fukuoka method of farming; a practice pioneered by Japanese farmer and philosopher Masunobu Fukuoka who referred to his work as ‘do-nothing farming.’ His methodology promoted minimal interference in the agricultural process; creating conditions in which natural processes left to their own accord maximise outputs.
Favonio is Moscato Bianco from 50 year old vines that is macerated on skins for three days in concrete before ageing in 700L oak tonneaux where it stays for 10 months before bottling without sulphur. A bright toned, spicy and structured orange wine with citrus peel, nut and exotic floral aromas balanced by a crisp finish.
