Castello Vicchiomaggio | Tuscany

Castello Vicchiomaggio property in Tuscany

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 150-hectare estate 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. To achieve this, the estate has been carefully classified according to its soil type and exposure and is cultivated sustainably, as certified by the VIVA certification. All winemaking is supervised by John Matta and his wines bear the all hallmarks of stylish elegance and are beautifully balanced. His wines truly express 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.
