The vine is Lambrusco Maestri. Planted mainly in lowland areas (it was born from the inspiration of a farmer from Valera, Luigi Maestri, from the lowlands of Parma) for its characteristics of resistance to humidity and mould, and also for its generous productivity, it has proved to be an excellent vine even in the hills.
Here, where fertility is much lower and there is no possibility of watering, bred in guyot with very strict pruning (only 7/10 buds on head to fruit) produces little, but with surprising quality results.
The result is a full-bodied wine, with good structure, considerable gradations (12% - 13%), and decidedly different from all his other colleagues. Excellent also to age!
Camillo Donati is one who respects nature as first principle. The history of its vineyards begins with his grandfather and the with the need to feed the family in the early twentieth century. Camillo Donati grows in the vineyards and begins immediately to take care of them, knowing the difficulties, but loving the environment. Its vineyards are found in Arola, Low Parma, the places of great salami. Camillo begins his vigneron path along with the family friend Ovidio in order to keep intact the practices of the cellar and the tradition of the wines of Emilia. Today it is a biological and biodynamic viticulture, all the processes are made by hand, as well as the sparkling wine that is made by natural fermentation in bottles. A tradition that can only continue with true respect for nature and its fruits.
