Antonio Camillo Procanico 2020
Working with predominantly older vines and grape varietals native to the Maremma, a coastal region of Tuscany, Antonio Camillo is first-and-foremost a farmer, then an old school producer eschewing modern trends, making low-intervention wines expressive of the terroir of the region, with a grace and delicacy that are proof of craft. This orange wine from 70 year-old Procanico (aka Trebbiano) vines gets 20 days of skin contact before resting in concrete. Wild floral aromatics on the nose lead to a fuller-bodied palate of stone fruit, citrus, and herbs, as you’d expect from Trebbiano, with texture and grip and a wild and fresh cidery character you want from an orange wine.
