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 vines are grown in La Prima vineyard where the soils are marl and clay. Gran
Selezione is a DOCG Chianti category and is produced exclusively with grapes from
single vineyards or selected from the estate's best-suited vineyards. In addition to
having stricter technical and organoleptic characteristics, Gran Selezione wines can
only be released to the market 30 months after the grape harvest, having spent at
least three months in bottle. These features place this at the summit of the Chianti
Classico quality pyramid.
Winemaking
Fermentation took place in temperature controlled tanks, with regular pump-overs of
the cap to ensure the desired levels of aeration. The wine was matured in French
oak barriques for a period of 18-24 months.
Tasting Note
A complex bouquet showing aromas of blueberry, cocoa, esspresso and a touch of
toasted oak. Full, velvety and complex flavours shine through on the sublimely
smooth palate leading to a long and elegant finish.
Serving Suggestion
A superb pairing for a succulent Sunday roast, a juicy rack of lamb, a fine Italian
Bistecca Fiorentina or a rich mushroom ravioli.
