"Wonderfully complex aromas that are rich with dried-cherry, floral and orange-peel character. Full-bodied, dense and layered with lots of ripe tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now and enjoy."

The Wine
The Carmignano Riserva is the flag ship wine of Piaggia, showcasing a modern interpretation of Carmignanos Sangiovese base blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The grapes are planted in an old vineyard near Pogetto, over clay and galestro soils on a south-west facing exposure. The grapes are all hand-picked and go thorugh punch down and pump-overs during fermentation. Aging occurs in French oak for 18 months and racked before bottling, with no fining or filtration.

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.
