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 the Ripa delle Mandorle vineyard, which sits at an altitude of 255
to 265 metres above sea level. The soil is marl with a heavy clay component of around
30%. The vines are planted at a density of 5,600 vines per hectare and are pruned
according to the single Guyot method, which ensures yields of approximately 60
hectolitres per hectare.
Winemaking
The fruit was harvested at optimum maturity levels. After a careful sorting the grapes
were fermented in temperature controlled tanks for five to eight days. The Sangiovese
was aged in large oak barrels of 25 to 50 hectolitres and the Cabernet Sauvignon was
matured in French oak barriques for a period of six months.
Tasting Note
