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.
Grapes are carefully selected from the Ripa delle Mandorle vineyard. The soil is marl
with clay and the vines are trained according to the Cordon method.
The fruit was harvested at optimum maturity levels. After a careful sorting the grapes
were fermented in temperature controlled tanks. The Sangiovese was aged in large
oak barrels of 25-50hl, while the Cabernet was matured in French oak barriques.
