Spending almost 3 weeks on the skins, this orange wine is funky, very aromatic, and textured. It is made entirely from biodynamically farmed Malvasia in the Emilia-Romagna. Fruit stone fruit notes mix with persimmons, and background notes of tropical fruit and saline. Snapping acidity with a visceral, edgy juicy texture that finishes with a slight touch of tannins leaving finishing notes of forest floor, citrus peel, and white flowers.
Notes from Raw Wine:
"During the '90s M. Bertoni founded Il Farneto, a naturally cultivated vineyard. The founder's intent was to contribute to sustainable agriculture initiatives, producing grapes while respecting the environment. Our 34 hectares of land, 8 of which are vineyard, are located between the hills of Scandiano and Canossa.Eventhough Farneto fields are relatively close to the residential area of Castellarano and Sassuolo, thanks to their elevation they preserve a particularly isolated positions. This upland despite its relatively close position to a heavily residential and industrial area of the towns of Castellarano and Sassuolo, still preserves a particularly isolated position, because of its geomorphological land features. In addition the territory presents a wide variety of biodiversity thanks to its favorable microclimate temperatures. Farneto fields naturally lend themselves to biodynamic agriculture. The quality of Farneto grapes perfectly suit an organic vinification process."
