Antonio Camillo, 'Tutti i Giorni' Rosso Litro 2020
A vibrant natural red with inviting aromatics and fresh fruit flavours. A great bottle for sharing. If ever there was a pizza wine then this is it. Anything tomato base. Maybe even a sprinkle of pineapple and chilli. Fuck I'm hungry now.
Antonio Camillo produces wines full of life, vitality and character from this estate in Manciano, Tuscany. Cultivation is organic and vinification follows principals of minimal intervention - these are pure expressions of grape and land. Tutti i Giorni is a blend of native Tuscan varieties Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo. Super fresh and uninhibited red fruits, Mediterranean herb and rose petal - simply delicious, and in a 1 litre bottle for your convenience.

Profile: Sangiovese is Italy's most planted grape variety, and the most dominant in Central Italy where it is responsible for some of the world's classic wines. Sangiovese has a broad flavour spectrum, ranging through mulberries, prunes, spice, tobacco, sometimes leather and chestnuts with a tendency toward extreme savouriness rather than fruit sweetness. When yields are low, as they typically are in the Classico zones and Brunello, the wines produced show extreme concentration and great longevity. There are few better pleasures than a mature Sangiovese. As with Nebbiolo, it is rather unfortunate that Sangiovese has rarely been mastered outside of its traditional home.
Classic Regions: Chianti, Brunello, Marche, Emilia-Romagna (Italy), McLaren Vale (Australia)
Antonio Camillo bought two vineyards totaling 5 hectares in the area between Sovana and Pitigliano on the border with Lazio. He is now up to 9 hectares and the vineyards are situated in various locations, for different soil and climate. They are only planted with varieties traditionally found in the Maremma: Vermentino, Trebbiano, Ansonica, Malvasia, Sangiovese, Ciliegiolo and Alicante. The wines are vegan.
From The Natty Boy
In a region globally known for the embrace of international varieties and Super Tuscan wines, Antonio Camillo chooses to tread a different path.
“I’ve been walking the vineyards of the Maremma for 15 years, and I’ve been making wines in some of the best wineries of the area. In the last nine years I contributed to the success of Poggio Argentiera, along with Gianpaolo Paglia and Justine Keeling. It has been a time where I grew professionally and where I developed the ambition of making some wines with my name and with my character. The area I’ve chosen is my homeland, where I was born and bred, the area of the “high” Maremma, near the villages of Manciano. It is a very Maremman area, but at the same time very different from the coastal area and even from the more inland Morellino di Scansano area. I strongly believe that in these locations we can make wines that can talk about their terroir and that can be easily recognizable for their character and their class, and I want to prove it”.
