Lo Sfuso is a vivacious and crunchy blend of Cabernet Franc and other local varieties of grape. It is fermented in concrete tanks that add a nicely granular note to the unpolished tannins. The wine is bottled immediately without any elaborate elevage, so carries with it a little CO2, resulting in a light spritz. Spicy raspberry, liquorice and green pepper aromas, combined with it's light spritz makes for a delicious and funky country red.
Alfonso Soranzo makes his Monteforche wines from four and a half hectares of vines that encompass his house in the village of Zovon di Vò in the Colli Euganei, a region that was previously an area of significant volcanic activity and the fossilised soils that remain are well suited to viticulture. The vines are looked after organically and Alfonso undertakes all of the vineyard work himself.
