TERRITORY

Nizza Monferrato is located in the Alto Monferrato, in the core areas of the UNESCO heritage zone. The area located in the Province of Asti has been selected within the DOCG territory of the Barbera grape variety. It has been cultivated for over 500 years in the Piemonte region of Italy, enclosing in its perimeter the most significant territorial portion of the grapes production: the cultural and landscape system of Barbera d'Asti.

In the context of Nizza Monferrato being considered the capital of Barbera, Tenuta Foresto is located in one of the largest "cru’s" of this grape variety. The company area is about 8 hectares, 6 of which are planted with vines, while the rest of the woods surround and protect the entire vineyard.

This ecosystem of woods, ponds and vineyards, unfortunately increasingly rare, creates the ideal conditions for closing the circle of our agriculture.
This balance has allowed us to support the formation of humus and microbiological fauna. Insects and animals, in turn, balance the course of the seasons.

The soil is mainly clayey limestone and the southern slope of the hill is characterized by a strip of tuff typical of the Alto Monferrato.
