The Piaggia farm is situated in the commune of Poggio a Caiano, in the province of Prato, about 14 kilometres west of Florence. It has vineyards in the Carmignano Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin area, partly in the commune of Poggio a Caiano and partly in the commune of Carmignano.

The winery was set up by Mauro Vannucci, who bought land in the DOC area near Piaggia in the mid 70s; he was convinced that the excellent exposure to the sun and the permeable, dry and clayey soil would produce a great Carmignano wine.

He produced the first Piaggia Carmignano Riserva DOCG in 1991 and since then his passion for wine has steadily grown. He has involved his daughter Silvia in this project and she is now the current owner of the winery. At the beginning of the 90s he bought a further 15 hectares in one of the best areas of the appellation, a kind of natural basin a few hundred metres from the centre of Carmignano, which gives a spectacular view of the city of Florence. The current property extends to about 25 hectares, 15 of which are cultivated with vines.

  1. Piaggia Il Sasso Carmignano DOCG 2010

    Piaggia Il Sasso Carmignano DOCG 2010

    Limited Stock

    AROMA: Cherries and Marasca cherries with elegant balsamic and spicy notes.

    FLAVOUR: Full and enveloping, with the charming elegance on the palate that is typical of“thoroughbred” Sangiovese.

    Carmignano Sasso is made from selected grapes grown in the winery's vineyard of the same name, located in one of the most interesting areas of the appellation, S. Cristina a Mezzana.

    "Our desire has always been to enhance the characteristics of this vineyard, which is an excellent terrain for producing the highest quality grapes. Il Sasso expresses all the depth and organoleptic richness of great Carmignano wines, combined with the freshness and elegance that great terroirs can express and guarantee over time: this is why we began this Cru, where the tradition of our land is given a modern slant." Silvia Vannucci
