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. Vintage

The Chianti Classico region experienced a balanced climate during the 2015 vintage. Warm weather in spring allowed the buds to flower evenly. This was followed by fantastic weather conditions during the growing season, warm, sunny days with low rainfall were balanced by cooler nights, enabling the grapes to reach excellent maturity levels in a healthy condition and with concentrated flavours. 2015 is considered a very good vintage. Vineyard

The grapes are carefully selected from the Ripa delle More vineyard. The sustainably cultivated vines exceed 20 years in age and are pruned according to strict requirements to guarantee a very low yield. The soil in this vineyard is Galestro and Argilla. Winemaking

The grapes were carefully sorted and then fermentation took place in temperature controlled tanks, preserving the aromatics and varietal characteristics of the berries. The wine was matured in French oak barriques for a period of 18 months, followed by one year in bottle. Tasting Note

A full bodied and elegant red with an abundance of sweet red fruits, liquorice, tobacco, aromatic herbs and gentle hints of balsamic through to a long and caressing finish. Sophisticated Tuscan at its best. Serving Suggestion
