"The 2019 Carmignano Il Sasso is flat-out stunning, lifting up with notes of spicy citrus offsetting sweet white smoke, raspberries, cherries and clove. This is silky-smooth and pliant, packed full of zesty red fruits and spices contrasted by cooling acidity. Theres so much to like here, finishing intensely fruity yet also remarkably fresh and long.

"The 2019 Carmignano Il Sasso is flat-out stunning, lifting up with notes of spicy citrus offsetting sweet white smoke, raspberries, cherries and clove. This is silky-smooth and pliant, packed full of zesty red fruits and spices contrasted by cooling acidity. Theres so much to like here, finishing intensely fruity yet also remarkably fresh and long. Drink today or lose this over the medium term. Its a wow wine and also a great value. Il Sasso is a blend of 70% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc that refines for one year in second and third-pass barriques.-- Eric Guido"

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.
