ANTONIO CAMILLO, Banditella di Alberese
Antonio Camillo is the winemaker for Poggio Argentiera but also owns two vineyards totalling 5 hectares in the Maremma Laziale in the very south of Tuscany. The climate is Mediterranean and the Ciliegiolo variety ripens beautifully here. His very old vine ‘Vallerana Alta’ was described in Decanter Magazine (February 2012) as “Italy’s best Ciliegiolo”. The Ciliegiolo varietal is believed to be either the parent, or the offspring of Sangiovese.
Vermentino “Marittimo” is a bright & pure fruited Vermentino, with notes of Mediterranean herbs, sage and rosemary The palate is dry with fresh white fruits and almonds notes.
