An artisanal red wine with great structure
Foretano comes from only Cesanese di Affile grapes grown according to the dictates of biodynamic agriculture .
Following the manual harvest and careful sorting, the bunches are pressed into exhausted tonneaux where spontaneous fermentation takes place. After racking and complete and spontaneous malolactic fermentation, the mass remains to mature in multi-passage tonneaux for a period of approximately 10 months, followed by a further 7 months of refinement in the bottle.
No oenological adjuvant is used throughout the entire winemaking process and the wine is not subjected to any clarification or filtration.
