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 grapes are sourced from the Agostino Petri vineyard. The vines are trained on
the cordon system and are grown in a marl and clay soil.
Winemaking
Fermentation took place in temperature controlled tanks with medium length
maceration on skins. Matured in French oak barriques for six months and then in
large oak barrels of 25 to 50hl, for a further nine months.
Tasting Note
A perfumed and elegant wine with a great structure and bouquet reminiscent of
chocolate and walnuts. Opulent, with a wonderful complexity and a silky, lingering
finish.
Serving Suggestion
Serve at room temperature to accompany roast or grilled meats, game and Tuscan
bean stew.
