2018 Farnea 'Birbo' Malvasia Tocai Blend

Veneto, Italy

Farnea's cantina consists of a small room at the edge of Marco’s house filled with concrete and fibreglass vats, old barrels and not much else. It's with only these tools and the grapes that Marco uses to make his wines.

If you haven't tried Farnea, you haven't experienced the true beauty of wild Italian skin contact untouched wine. 2018 Birbo is a blend of organic and untouched Malvasia and Tocai grapes. Fermented and aged in concrete vats, ten days of skin contact, unfiltered, and unfined. She is is crispy and tart, funky, fruity and fresh. Like a pineapple.

About the maker

Marco Burrati lives his life with minimal possessions, almost monk like, and makes his wines in exactly the same manner. Only grapes, barrels and tanks.

Marco Buratti’s Azienda Agricola Farnea is in the far north of Italy with around two hectares of vines and three hectares of woodlands as part of the Colli Euganei National Park. The rich volcanic soils of the area have drawn vignerons in since early in the eighteenth century. All the grapes are hand harvested, the fields are worked without any chemicals and the wines are untouched through the process. The resultant wines represent the forest so superbly well that it creates a truly unique tasting set of wines.
