Localization: Piemont, Italy
Tasting Notes: Pale straw yellow, fresh fruited and flowered notes, citrus fruits, and sage. Slightly sparkly. On palate, it’s sweet and well-balanced strengthened by a fair acid vein and sapidity. Best served at 6-8° C. It pairs well with hazelnut cakes and leavened pastries. Ideal as an aperitif too, accompanied by bread with butter and anchovies or blue cheeses.
The Domain: The Fornos has a long history in Santo Stefano Belbo, documented as early as the mid-1600s. Still today, maps of the area show the <<Cascina Forno>>, also known as Il Falchetto Estate.
Coming from a family of winegrowers and wine lovers, Pietro Forno began producing and selling the first bottles of Moscato in 1940.
At the beginning of ‘70s, Pietro passes the reins of the winery to his sons Natalino and Luigi, who renovated the cellar introducing new machines for better control of alcoholic fermentation and buying new vineyards. They continued to work with passion and innovation, always respecting the tradition and the territory.
