" A very polished, pretty Carmignano with currant, blackberry and chocolate character. Its full-bodied, yet theres polish and balance to the wine. A blend of sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot. Delicious now, but is going to be even better in 2021."

"The 2018 Carmignano Il Sasso is beautifully finessed from start to finish. The purity of the flavors is really quite striking. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice, cedar and tobacco are some of the many notes that run through this super-expressive and inviting Carmignano. Sweet floral accents linger. -- Antonio Galloni"

The Wine
70 Sangiovese, 20 Cabernet Sauvignon, 10 Merlot. Maceration on the skins in small (40-50 Hl.) steel tanks for 3 weeks at 32C, ageing in French-oak barriques for 12 months, cellaring in the bottle for 6 months.

Tasting Notes
Marasca cherries jump from the glass with elegant hints of balsamic and spice. The wine is full and enveloping on the palate with a charming elegance.

The Estate
Piaggia is located right in the heart of Carmignano. The total vineyard extension is approximately 15 hectares, divided between the area of S. Cristina a Mezzana and the municipality of Poggio a Caiano, both areas with a great potential for top quality wines. Mauro Vannucci started this activity in 1990 because of his great passion for great red wines, with the aim to produce wines up to the standard of Carmignano appellation. In its almost 20 years of existence, Piaggia has managed to solidly establish its place among the great wineries of the classic Tuscan DOC of Carmignano, being called by Gambero Rosso one of the best wineries in the region of Carmignano, rather, in Tuscany.

Vineyard Management: Piaggia is a practicing organic winery. Integrated insect and disease control is followed. Organic fertilizers, copper and sulphur-based products are mainly used, but the vineyards see no insecticides or herbicides. The soil between the rows of vines is tilled. Low doses of SO2 in the wines for preservation.
