"San Jacopo da Vicchiomaggio" Chianti Classico DOCG 2020 - Castello Vicchiomaggio

San Jacopo Chianti Classico DOCG is an elegant red wine of tradition, proposed by Castello Vicchiomaggio. Pure Sangiovese grapes from the Greve in Chianti area. The grapes, once ripe, are harvested and quickly brought to the winery. Vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks, with a maceration phase that lasts for about 8/10 days. At the end of fermentation and after racking, the wine is transferred into large oak casks of 25 or 50 hectolitres, where it matures for about eight months before bottling. San Jacopo is a pleasant vintage Chianti Classico, representing the authentic Chianti tradition. A wine with a lively and gastronomic character, characterised by a beautiful, luminous ruby red colour. The nose expresses itself with hints of black cherry, iris, cinnamon and a hint of rosemary and bay leaf. In the mouth, however, it is lively, fresh, with tannins that are anything but unpleasant. Perfect with the classic grilled steak, this Chianti has only one flaw. One bottle is never enough!

The origins of Vicchiomaggio Castle, initially called Vicchio dei Longobardi, date back to around 1400, as recorded on some ancient parchments still preserved today. We are on top of a hill that dominates the entire Greve Valley, about 18 kilometres from Florence. In its long and glorious history, many personalities have stayed at Castello Vicchiomaggio, including Leonardo da Vinci, who painted his most famous masterpiece, the Mona Lisa. Today John and Paola Matta are the owners of the castle. The estate covers about 140 hectares, of which 34 are planted with vines, 10 with olive trees, and the rest is parkland. Sangiovese is the estate's most representative grape variety, a fundamental grape for the production of Chianti Classico. With it, however, at Castello Vicchiomaggio there are also other international grape varieties, such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. These varieties, in particular, are used for the production of IGT red wines. A Mediterranean climate and typical soil rich in clay and large stones, the so-called Galestro, are the basic elements of the Castello's terroir.
