Donati Camillo | Lambrusco
Natural wine has no uniform definition. It is a general term used to describe artisanal wine made using organically and/or biodynamically grown hand-picked grapes which are vinified with little or no intervention. Winemakers often rely on indigenous yeast to catalyse natural fermentation, avoiding the use of any chemicals, additives or sulphites.
The result is wine which is alive, energetic, vibrant and unexpected – a welcomed contrast to the industrial practices of the wine industry.

Azienda Agricola Donati Camillo
A deep, brilliant crimson colour. It has soft brown-sugar and strawberry pulp aromas, with a little hint of briar. On the palate it is frizzante, with quite a robust, serious, earthy chewy-cherry fruit and a quite intense plum-skin grip. Mouthfilling and well-textured, there is plenty of racy raspberry acidity and lovely balance.
*Natural wines are suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
