Born & bred in the maremma region on Tuscany's Tyrhennian coast. Antonio Camillo worked for fifteen years as a cellar master in the most important estates in Maremma (the last eight at Poggio Argentiera).
Recently Antonio felt the necessity to fly with his own wings and produce his own wine so he bought two ancient, organic vineyards in the South of the region, on the border with Lazio, totalling five hectares in the area between Sovana and Pitigliano (in the south of Maremma on the border. Nearby are the beautiful Saturnia hot springs. Exquisite wines have been produced in this area since Etruscan times, making the most of the rich volcanic soil and Antonio is one of a group of local innovative organic producers creating exciting "natural" wines.
15 years vines near Campagnatico village at 250m above sea level on clay rich soil.
Fermentation in steel with maceration on the skins on 12-15 days. 6 months in cement and 3 months in bottle.
Concentrated black and red cherries with herbal lifts (particularly oregano) and soft, ripe juicy tannins. Rich but refreshing acidity that's mouth watering and long.
