Winemaking: Organic Barbera grapes were hand harvested and fermented in cement tank with indigenous yeast. Ancestral techniques (pet nat) were used where the wine underwent second fermentation in bottle. No fining, filtration or added sulphur.

This Wine: A lightly sparkling red wine (pet nat) with loads of cherry and cranberry flavours along with mouth tingling acidity. Hazy in the glass with a delicious hint of sweetness.

Notes on the Winemaker: Francesco Pozzobon hails from the Veneto region but now makes natural wine under the name Tenuta Foresto in Nizza Monferrato which is just south of Asti. he was inspired by the methods of Japanese farmer and philosopher Masunobu Fukuoka and aims to have as little impact on the natural ecosystem as possible. We visited in 2022 to try his wines in barrel which are getting better with every vintage. He previously lived in Highbury before heading back to Italy to start his winemaking project.
