Antonio Camillo

Antonio Camillo Morellino di Scansano 2018

For 25 years Antonio has taken care of vineyards and wine working in major wineries around Maremma, contributing to the production of wines for the region. In 2006 he has embarked on his own wine production, dedicating his time exclusively to indigenous grapes: walking along the rows of vines in Maremma, selecting the best vineyards for their exposure, soil and age. He works almost exclusively with old vines, aged between 40 and 50 years, which he has rented for 12 years. Vines are cultivated according to traditional methods, intervening as little as possible with mechanical and green pruning, so as not to put stress on the plant. To help keep the vines healthy only organic products are used (copper and sulphur).
