Castello Vicchiomaggio is an internationally renowned Chianti producer in the Greve region in Florence, run by the Matta family.

The most prominent vine is the typical Chianti varietal Sangiovese, in addition the indiginous Canaiolo, Colorino and the international varieties Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are planted.

The Chianti Classico area is characterised by a mediterranean climate and the soil is called "Galestro”, rich in clay and large stones. The vines are all facing south, ensuring maximum exposure to the sun throughout the day. Harvesting is done by hand and takes place between mid-September and mid-October. John Matta was a.o. elected IWSC Italian Winemaker of the Year several times and his wines won several top marks by Wine Spectator, Decanter, Concours Mondial de Bruxelles and James Suckling.
