Producer Note

The historical origins of Castello Vicchiomaggio can be traced back to the 5th century. The present owners, the Matta family, acquired the property in 1964 and restored it back to its former splendour. The estate, with 150 hectares, is one of the largest in the area, and of these, 32 hectares are dedicated to the vine. Castello Vicchiomaggio produces several styles of wine, from the traditional to the innovative. In order to achieve this, the estate has been carefully classified according to its soil type and exposure. All production and winemaking is supervised by John Matta. The hallmark of John's wines is elegance, perfumed, stylish and all have beautiful balance. These wines truly show off the Sangiovese grape at its best. Vicchiomaggio is consistently classified amongst Italy's top estates and John Matta has been named IWSC Italian Winemaker of the Year four times in the last 14 years.

Vineyard

The vineyards are located in the heart of the Chianti Classico region and sit at an altitude of 255 to 265 metres above sea level. Planted to a density of 5,600 vines per hectare, the vines are pruned according to the Single Guyot method which ensures low yields of approximately 52 hectolitres per hectare. The soils are made up of a high proportion of heavy clay- approximately 30%, which is renowned for its cooling properties and water retention for the vine, as well as for producing bold wines from the Sangiovese grape.

Winemaking

Fermentation took place in stainless steel temperature controlled fermentation vats for a period of eight to 10 days with daily pumping-over. The wine was then matured for six months in large oak barrels of 25 to 50hl before being released between 12 and 24 months after the vintage.

Tasting Note

Named after an antique farmhouse located on the wine estate, this smooth and elegant wine is a lovely expression of Chianti. With red cherry and cranberry fruits, the palate has good substance and a lingering, rounded finish.

Serving Suggestion

Serve at room temperature with grilled and roast meats, carpaccio of beef, cannelloni or roasted peppers.
