Piaggia Carmignano

"The Carmignano Riserva is simply the best of the appellation." – The Wine Advocate

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.

94  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 94 "The 2015 Carmignano Riserva Piaggia is another flat-out gorgeous wine from the Vanucci family. Bright, lifted and wonderfully focused, the 2015 has so much to offer. Red berry fruit, rose petal, mint, sage and anise all add layers of nuance, but the 2015 is one of the wines where

95  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 95 "Piaggia's 2015 Carmignano Il Sasso is rich, ample and voluptuous in what is a very representative expression of the year. Black cherry, plum, lavender, spice, tobacco and dried herbs develop in the glass, but the 2015 is all about fruit intensity and texture. There is not much

Piaggia 'Riserva' Carmignano 2014
94  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 94 "A wine of explosive energy and power, the 2014 Carmignano Riserva Piaggia possesses an unreal level of concentration for the year. A rush of red cherry, pomeranate, orange peel and exotic spice makes a strong statement. Quite simply, the 2014 is a total knock-out. Don't miss it. --

91  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 91 "The 2014 Carmignano Il Sasso is a nicely executed blend of 70% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot (that is aged in barrique for 14 months). Despite the difficult vintage that saw extended periods of rain and cool weather during the first half of summer, this blended

93  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 93 "The Piaggia 2013 Carmignano Riserva is a delicious expression of 70% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot. The assembled wine ages in barrique for two years and some 30,000 bottles are made. I love the thick and determined way this rich red wine wraps over the palate.

91  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 91 "The 2012 Carmignano Riserva Piaggia is a gorgeous, understated wine. Sweet tobacco, cedar, herbs, licorice and dark red cherry notes meld together in a layered, exquisite Carmignano that emphasizes finesse over power. I especially admire the wine's nuance and delineation. Dark

Wine Spectator 90 "Bright cherry flavors and hint of herbs and spice highlight this focused red. Tobacco and earth notes grace the lingering finish. Needs short-term aging. Best from 2017 through 2023. 1,280 cases made. –BS"  Vinous Media 90 "The 2013 Carmignano Il Sasso is a very pretty,

94  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 94 "The 2011 Carmignano Riserva Piaggia is incredibly tight and backward at this stage. Leather, smoke, grilled herbs and tobacco add complexity to a core of dark red fruit in a powerful, structured wine that is going to need time to settle down. The long, resonant finish points to a

Vinous Media 92 "The 2012 Carmignano Il Sasso is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Silky, layered and voluptuous in the glass. Dark red berries, flowers, mint and spices hit the palate in an exuberant, racy wine bursting with energy, tension and pure class. Dollops of Cabernet Franc and Merlot round out

Piaggia 'Riserva' Carmignano 2009
92  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 92  "The 2009 Carmignano Riserva Piaggia is richer and deeper than the 2008 in its fruit, yet retains the medium-bodied structure that is typical of the vintage. Tobacco, flowers and cherries wrap around the soft, mid-palate and finish. The 2009 is a bit more overt in its fruit than

Piaggia 'Il Sasso' Carmignano Sangiovese 2009
92  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 92 "The 2009 Carmignano Il Sasso is striking. Freshly cut flowers, red berries, spices and mint are all woven together nicely in this vibrant, perfumed Carmignano. Layers of fruit build to an intense, mineral-laced finish. Il Sasso is mostly Sangiovese, with some Cabernet Sauvignon

93  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 93  "The 2008 Carmignano Riserva Piaggia bursts from the glass with an exotic melange of tar, espresso, black cherries, spices and licorice. The 2008 isn’t a huge Piaggia, at least not in relative terms, but rather it is a wine that impresses for its gorgeous inner perfume and

 Robert Parker 93 "The 2007 Carmignano Riserva Piaggia is rich, sensual and totally convincing. Silky tannins frame a core of expressive red fruit. Sweet, floral aromatics appear later, followed by mocha, licorice and new leather. This is a marvelously complete, textured Piaggia. Anticipated

94  Robert Parker 
 Robert Parker 94 "The single-vineyard 2006 Carmignano Riserva Piaggia is a rock star wine. Super-ripe dark cherries, flowers, minerals, licorice and subtle earthiness sit on a powerful, imposing frame. This could not be more different than the two 2007s I tasted alongside it. Dense and structured

89  Robert Parker 
Robert Parker 89 "The 2008 Carmignano Il Sasso is a bit muted in this vintage. The fruit shows lovely freshness and energy, but the 2008 doesnt quite have its usual mid-palate elegance. Sweet black cherries, menthol and licorice linger on the understated finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014"

Robert Parker: 92 "The 2005 Carmignano Riserva Piaggia is sweet, silky and intensely perfumed in its delicate red fruit. The 2005 is an understated Piaggia, but the wines balance is exceptional and its freshness should allow it to develop beautifully in bottle. The fruit is remarkably pure and
