About the Wine

A big favourite here at Wayward - this nectar-like aromatic wine has stuck with us since the first vintage we tasted. It's blend of Moscato Giallo and Bianco from fifty year old vines in Teolo, with a little fruit from a parcel Marco rents up the hill in Monte della Madonna. The grapes spent a fortnight on the skins and were aged in a combination of old barriques and cuve for eight months. After some slightly more funky iterations in recent years, the 2021 sees Emma back on immaculate, whistle-clean form. Floral aromas of exotic lily, elderflower and tinned peaches seduce, with neat tannins framing a pulpy, textural body.

About Farnea

Marco Buratti's Azienda Agricola Farnea occupies around two hectares of vines and three hectares of woodlands in a particularly beautiful part of the 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. The cantina consists of a small room at the edge of Marco's house strewn with concrete and fibreglass vats, old barrels and not a lot else. These tools, along with the grapes, are all Marco uses to make wines, there is nothing added at any stage. These are amongst the most vibrant wines we have found in Italy and once opened, a bottle does not last long. We only wish he made a little more.
