Le Campore Chardonnay/Sauvignon Il Pratello, biodynamic wine, 70% Chardonnay, 30% Sauvignon Blanc, zesty, creamy, elegant, barrel fermented and aged. Made from 70% Chardonnay and 30% Sauvignon Blanc, fermented in tank with some skin contact and then aged in barriques for a further year. Still a baby with great zest and freshness, rounded out by creamy oak. It has character and nature oozing from every glass. With age, the wine will mature and take on a deeper colour and more earthy and textural feel. But don’t get me wrong, this is beautiful white wine now, soft stone fruits, notes of undergrowth and that nutty, toasty oak which is perfectly integrated. This is a really excellent glass of Italian wine for lovers of white Burgundy.

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. Based 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. Here among the vines, 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. There is a real honesty in the wines here. At Pratello, they are farmers, labourers and keepers of the land. Their wines 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.
