ANTONIO CAMILLO, PROCANICO (ORANGE) 6 Bottle Case 75cl
The nose is wild and enticing, herbaceous with forest floor notes, ripe stone fruits and dried fruits, a lovely freshness to the wine and plenty of body. An orange wine lover will lap this up and the price is superb considering Antonio makes only a few cases a year.
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 decided it was time to break way on his own and produce his own wine so he bought two vineyards totalling five hectares in the area between Sovana and Pitigliano (in the south of Maremma on the border with Lazio). He works with local grape varieties such as Procanico and Ciliegiolo, often underrated, but here allowed to shine in wines that are unmistakably Tuscan. He ferments with indigenous yeasts and eschews chemical intervention, practicing organic viticulture.
