Castello Vicchiomaggio is an ancient structure that is placed on top of a hill in the Greve and that dates back to 1400, having reached its peak as a Renaissance villa. Leonardo Da Vinci lived here while he was engaged in painting the Mona Lisa and here Francesco Redi composed the verses of "Bacchus in Tuscany".

From the middle of 60s, the castle belongs to Matta family, who has retrained it and make it home of the wine production. At the beginning, after a long experience in London as an importer of Italian and French wines, Federico Matta decided to work only on the production of high quality wines. Today the castle is in the hands of his son John, who studied at the Wine School of Alba and enjoyed the help of his wife Paola, keeping working focusing on the enhancement of food tourism.

The vineyards stretch along the hillsides on clay soils with large presence of stone limestone. The cultivation is a serious and rigorous affair, being contrary to the organic farming because personally convinced of the harmfulness of copper for the ground. The manufacturing of grapes is without force and, at the end, the aging is takes place both in large wooden barrels and in barriques.

These results are the expression of a qualitative continuity that makes Castello Vicchiomaggio a great manufacturer in the production of Chianti Classico. These are wines that represent their territory, being cured and noble but not without character, enriched by modern stylistic imprint but never excessive, very elegant. The range of products, being one better than the other, pay off for years Matta family of all the effort and investment put in place in the enhancement of the castle and the territory adjacent to the slopes of the hills: a winning program to enjoy.
