Forteto della Luja | Piedmont

Forteto della Luja | Piedmont

The history of the farmhouse of Forteto della Luja, including the stone cave cellar, dates back to the 1700's. The name comes from the surrounding woods through which the Rio Luja flows. The farm has been a WWF-supported oasis since 2007 and an educational center for the University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo since 2011. Responsible for this natural oasis is Giovanni Scaglione. - Gerardo

"With its centuries-old traditional Piedmontese house and a stone cellar dating to 1700, Forteto della Luja, perched about 20 miles west ob Alba, is dreamy, in every sense. It's so untouched that the World Wildlife Federation has designated it as 'diversity oasis'. The wines of Forteto della Luja somehow convey a sense of not having been manhandled. What I call 'tenderness' comes not from one particular philosophy, but rather from a larger sensibility of deference. Wines grown with this sensibility almost never seem excessive - not too oaky, not too tannic, not too anything that might come from a muscular interventionism. Shorn of calculation, their stylistic vulnerability makes them seem tender." - Matt Kramer (Wine Spectator)
