Intense and thick ruby red color. Complex on the nose, reminiscent of fruitsof the forest jam, sweet spices, thyme and cocoa. Full-bodied. Excellent balancebetween alcohols and polyalcohols, acids and tannins, with a persistent finishand a pleasant sweet, fresh and fruity follow-through. It goes well with maturecheeses, red meat and game.
Blend: 70% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot

Shows some good ripeness without being over the top, painting a picture of dried red cherries, spices, plum liqueur and vanilla and tobacco. Full body, round and ripe tannins and a fruit-forward finish. Drink from 2021.
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.”
The area. With recorded history of red wine production since the Middle Ages, Carmignano is a small, ancient, central Italian subregion ten miles northwest of Florence. Carmignano grows Sangiovese with great success in low-lying hills of 160 to 650 feet above sea level.
It is the only Tuscan DOC that required the inclusion of (up to 20%) Cabernet Sauvignon in its Sangiovese-based wines years before it became popular in the Super Tuscan blends.
