Why we love it
Podej is a great Barbera, another experiment from the winery, and it started with the question "can a great barbera be produced in the land of Dolcetto?" The answer is in the Piedmontese word “Podej”, which indicate the farm where the barbera is grown and transformed into a a great red wine.
This Barbera is obtained from organic grapes grown following biodynamic agriculture and natural principles and does not contain added sulphites and it is made using yeasts naturally present in the grapes. The Barbera is then bottled unfiltered.
For us, the answer to the question above is a big "yes", a great barbera can be produced in the land of dolcetto. This Barbera shows a complex nose with fruity notes, in the palate is full, lively, balanced with a long finish. This Barbera pairs beautifully rich dishes, red meat and mature cheeses.
The artisan who made it
Forti del vento is Marco, Manuela and Tomaso that have taken over from their grandparents the love for work and the discipline of the land and an innovative spirit. The name Forti del Vento stands for strength and lightness; matter and spirit. Forti del Vento wines are about ancient and natural methods, preserving the woods and hedges and consider insects their allies for maintaining the richness deriving from biodiversity.
Forti del Vento is biodynamic agriculture. The Forti del Vento winery and vineyards, 7 hectares growing native local grapes, is located in the Alto Monferrato, Piedmont. The vineyards are located in the heart of the Dolcetto area, about about 300m above sea level. Their goal is to make wines that talks about their work, the respect for the territory, the grapes that come from. They like found themselves in a glass of wine instead of getting lost in a glass of water.
Together with Dolcetto they grow barbera, chardonnay, albarossa and cortese.
