Carmignano is not quite the household name that Chianti is, well not in Australia at least. It is, in fact, a very noble area with a long and well-documented history; unfortunately, however, in the early 20th century it was swallowed by Chianti’s stretching borders and did not regain its, slightly altered, identity until the 1970s. Emerging with a mandatory addition of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmignano has since established itself as one of Italy’s most prestigious red wine regions.

Poggio a Caiano, Carmignano

Carmignano is not quite the household name that Chianti is, well not in Australia at least. It is, in fact, a very noble area with a long and well-documented history; unfortunately, however, in the early 20th century it was swallowed by Chianti’s stretching borders and did not regain its, slightly altered, identity until the 1970s. Emerging with a mandatory addition of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmignano has since established itself as one of Italy’s most prestigious red wine regions. 

Mauro Vannucci bought land in the region in the mid 1970s, and began commercial production of the first Piaggia wines in 1990. Since then, the estate has expanded by another 15 hectares of prime vineyard land just outside the town of Carmignano. Today, the estate consists of 25 hectares, with 15 hectares under vine, and a significant portion of the remaining devoted to olives. Piaggia stands as one of Carmignano’s finest proponents, producing wines of real power, typicity and coiled structure.
