Marco Buratti Farnea Il Pazzo
Marco Buratti’s Azienda Agricola Farnea occupies around two hectares of vines and three hectares of woodlands in Veneto's Colli Euganei National Park.
The land here has been planted with grapes since the eighteenth century, when the vignaioli of old were drawn to the area’s fertile volcanic soils. Marco’s vines are worked by hand without the use of chemicals, a way of working he had decided on before clearing the forest to plant vines here in 2003.
Il Pazzo is a unique Merlot, fermented whole bunch on skins for a month before ageing a year in barrels. It's deep and savoury with leafy plum and blackberry, tobacco spice and gamey undertones.
