“The 2015 Cabernet Franc Poggio de' Colli is another compelling wine from Piaggia. Silky, aromatically precise and wonderfully nuanced, the 2015 has it all. Lavender, blueberry jam and spice are some of the many notes that develop with time in the glass. This powerful, resonant Franc from Piaggia is deeply satisfying from the very first taste.”

"A pure expression of Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Poggio de' Colli is an impressive effort. This wine offers more evidence of just how beautifully this French grape performs in the warmest pockets of Tuscany. The wine reveals a midnight black appearance with thick aromas of black fruit and marmalade. Like the other wines from this vintage, you are immediately aware of the sweetness and the ripeness of the fruit on display. Perhaps that warmth will not hold in the long run but this wine is drinking beautifully just as it is right now."
"Through the use of old French clones present on the estate and after years of careful vinification and specific wine tastings, we began producing a monovarietal Cabernet Franc: Poggio de' Colli. This species of vine has found in our grounds the ideal habitat to produce wines of outstanding elegance, refinement and complexity.
Hence the will to combine French tradition with the heart and soul of Tuscany. Poggio de' Colli is an unconventional wine that is both unique and unrepeatable." -Winery
“If there is one estate that embodies the potential of Carmignano, Piaggia just might be it.” – Antonio Galloni
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.”
Vineyard Management: Piaggia is a practicing organic winery. Integrated insect and disease control is followed. Organic fertilizers, copper and sulphur-based products are mainly used, but the vineyards see no insecticides or herbicides. The soil between the rows of vines is tilled. Low doses of SO2 in the wines for preservation." -Importer
