The gentle rolling hills of Tuscany are not only home to Italy`s culture and language, but also to the grand wine estates of Chianti to the north and the more modest yet superb estates of Montalcino and Montepulciano in the south. The Sangiovese is the red grape variety that unites Tuscany`s wine producing districts in its various distinct clones. However, planting of international grape varieties, such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, have given rise to the world renowned `Super Tuscan` wines.
Castello Vicchiomaggio is situated in the heart of the Chianti region, close to the historical town of Greve in Chianti. The origins of the Castello and wine making can be traced back to the 5th century, and the present owners, John and Paola Matta, are dedicated to maintaining this tradition.
The Classico district is the heart of Chianti, with vineyards around the market town of Greve, south of Florence. The Vicchiomaggio estate makes typical vibrant Classico Riserva, from the `Petri` vineyard, which is over 20 years old, producing low yields and excellent grape quality. It is a full bodied wine with good fresh fruit, a touch of oak and a bittersweet finish.
