Grape Variety: Cabernet Franc
Producer: Faedesfa (Alberto Buratti)
Region: Rovolon, Colli Euganei, Veneto, Italy
Wild Scale: 4/5
Winemaking: Organic Cabernet Franc grapes from 2 different plots were harvested by hand. Whole bunch carboni maceration for 15 days. Fermentation with indigenous yeast. Aged for 3 months in steel tanks before bottling with no fining, filtration or added sulphur.
This Wine: Natural red wine that is light and vibrant with red fruit flavours and a peppery finish. It's delicate but has a nice complexity with a herbal note running throughout. Very fresh.
Notes on the Winemaker: Alberto Buratti farms just over 3 hectares of vines in the Colli Euganei region of Veneto. He grew up around these vineyards when his Grandfather worked them but it wasn't until 2019 that he took the plunge to take over full time. Now he works with local and international grape varieties that he grows organically and doesn't add anything in the winemaking process.
