Francesco Pozzobon is a young winemaker farming eight hectares in Nizza Monferrato on chalky limestone.  Inspired by Masunobo Fukuoka's seminal work, 'One Straw Revolution', he practises a radical approach to viticulture - trusting in natural cycles and processes. He farms mostly Barbera (his favourite grape) with a little Moscato, Cortese and Chardonnay alongside, with vines varying from 10-70 years old. 


Acru is Francesca's top cuvee from the oldest Barbera vines (45-70 years old).  Left to ferment on the skins for a month in old oak with regular punchdowns.  The resulting wine is aged in a mixture of old oak barrels and tonneaux (700L large oak barrels).  This is a rich bold expression of Barbera.
