Details

Morana Sangiovese Pratello, 100% Sangiovese, Biodynamic wine, barrel aged, tastes of Autumn! Morana harnesses the wild and tough of the Pratello environment. It has the beating heart of the animals which graze and forage in the vineyard and the lush but savoury fruit character of the Sangiovese grape. The nose explodes with wild mushroom, scrub and wild berry aromas and the palate is rich yet elegant, delicious Sangiovese from this fabulous little Biodynamic producer.


Emilio Placci took over from his father in 91. He is a simple looking guy, a broad smile, a warm manner and always ready and willing to talk about his true passion, his wine. We are in Emilia Romagna, 600 metres above sea level, tucked away from any influence of intensive farming or chemical fertilisers. This place is nature in perfect harmony, wild thyme jostles with flowers, poppies, acacia, cherries and wild rose. The habitat is owned by the deer, squirrels and porcupines and Emilio sees himself as a guest, gratefully sharing in the bounty of this place. The soils are poor and sandy and the wine, made only with indigenous yeast is wild, rich and delicious. It is not trying too hard to be anything that will impress judges in the competitions across the world, at Pratello, they are farmers, labourers and keepers of the land. There wines reflect their honest endeavour and simple pleasures. They are delicious, marrying the sense of the earth with the style and quality of an instinctive wine maker, this is the kind of wine one aspires to drink every day.
