A brand new one for you today! And this is something a little on the special side. We've stocked Castello Vicchiomaggio since we opened but now we have a couple of new beauties available from these amazing creators.
Castello Vicchiomaggio is also a well-known producer of internationally renowned wines. Wine has always been produced at the Castle and its owners, John and Paola Matta, dedicate their lives to preserving this centuries-old tradition.
Among the cultivated varieties: the most prominent vine is Sangiovese, which is the fundamental grape for Chianti Classico, but there are also other indigenous grapes such as Canaiolo and Colorino, as well as two international varieties which are Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The latter are in particular demand for the production of their famous IGT-certified red wines.

This gorgeous wine is a fine, full-bodied concentrated juice, with flavours of ripe red fruits, smoke and toast, spice and herbs. Two years on oak have made this smooth and soft on the palate but with some real dedication and skill put into the finish.
Honestly it has been a long time coming but now is your chance to try some of the better things that Castello Vicchiomaggio has to offer. Cheers!
