Castello d’Aqua 2019 - Il Farneto
This product is currently sold out.
This is a little cloudy and orange and reminds me of murrey mints! it tastes like poached rhubarb and has a really attractive dry chewiness on the finish.
In the 1990s, Marco Bernini was an industrialist with a biodynamic dream. That dream became Agricola del Farneto, Mauro’s sustainable agriculture project in the province of Reggio Emilia. Today, Il Farneto compasses 30 hectares of farmland, of which eight are dedicated to vines.
Il Farneto is located in the first hills of the isolated Farneto plain – shielded by forests, gypsum outcrops and massive limestone calanques. It is a strange and otherworldly terroir, presided over by birds of prey as much as humans, and home to an array of unusual fauna. The soil here, paliocene clays rich in fossils, is particularly receptive to grape cultivation and the strong dawn till dusk exposure and good ventilation make for healthy grapes and expressive ripening.
