Description

A perfumed and elegant wine, showing aromas of dark cherry and violet complemented by a touch of cedar. Opulent, with elegant tannins enveloping the layers of fruit through to a smooth and velvety finish

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.
