Producer: Pauline Alfano & Francesco Pozzobon
Grape: Moscato Bianco
Bottle Size: 75cl
Half as long a maceration as usual, this year’s Favonio is brighter toned and in tighter focus than the 2019, a welcome variation on a favourite. A clean, powerful yet delicate orange. The effect of the limestone and skin contact is so evident through the stone fruit flavour, all whilst maintaining it’s crisp, fresh and clean feel. 50 year old vines. Grapes are de-stemmed and placed into 50hl concrete tanks for 4 days. Pressed back to concrete to continue fermentation. After racking, the wine spends 8 months in a mix of 20hl oak and acacia barrels.
No added sulphur, Vegan, Organic
