Il Pratello

Modigliana – On inheriting the estate from his father in 1991, Emilio Placci saw the chance to put into practice his studies and work experience in wine cellars. This has been put into practice over the years with the Pratello land, in the rural district of Modigliana. A few stocks and tendrils surviving among the scrub down by the ruined cemetery once used by the fifteenth century abbey form a bridge to today’s vines. Away from any contact with intensive farming, fertilizer and pesticides, on Pratello’s hill you’ll see nothing but the cycle of flora and fauna typical of the Mediterranenan Macchia. Wild thyme jostles with cornflower, the scent of acacia mingles with wild gean, blackthorn, sorb and cornel cherry, delicate wild rose and an explosion of red poppy. The badger, the squirrel, porcupine and roe deer have resumed their habitat, where man is a guest amid the wonders of this great design, tapping the juice of the grape in an age-old miracle.

Modigliana – Modigliana is the territory with the highest vineyards of Emilia Romagna and the purest sand soils, that give wines austere character and high acidity, that allows thema very good ageing potential.
