Piaggia Carmignano: second “The Jewels of Carmignano” tasting session

Let’s explore together another great estate of the Carmignano Terroir. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Piaggia Carmignano – Thursday October 25th, 5/8pm.

The Piaggia estate is in the is situated in the Poggio a Caiano comune, Prato province. Its vineyards are in the Carmignano DOCG – Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin area, between Poggio a Caiano and Carmignano.

The wine production started in the Seventies, when Mauro Vannucci, purchased the land in Piaggia, convinced of its qualities (exposure to the sun, permeable, dry and clayey soil).

The first Piaggia Carmignano Riserva DOCG was ready in 1991. Silvia, Mauro’s daughter, is now in charge of the winery. In the Nineties Piaggia bought 15 hectares close to the very center of the Carmignano area.

The Piaggia wines are… very “starred” ones. The Poggio de’Colli IGT Toscana 2014 has been rated 5 stars by Bibenda 2017; the Piaggia Carmignano Riserva DOCG 2012 by La guida dell’Espresso 2016; Poggio de’Colli IGT Toscana 2012 has been rated 98/100 by I Vini di Veronelli 2015.

The estate produces also Olio Extra Vergine d’Oliva – Extra Virgin Olive Oil – and it has a wonderful tasting room. But your next Piaggia Carmignano tasting session is at Alessi, with the October 25th #tastingalessi tasting event!
