WINERY: Piaggia
REGION: Tuscany
GRAPE: 80% Sangiovese with 20% Cabernet Franc

WINEMAKER NOTES: Pietranera derives from Piaggia's will to produce a wine reflecting the pleasantness and the elegance of their terroir and to offer an excellent structured wine that pairs well with many dishes but also is a pleasure to drink on its own.

TASTING NOTES: Intense and thick ruby red colour. Complex on the nose, reminiscent of fruits of the forest jam, sweet spices, thyme and cocoa. Full-bodied. Excellent balance between alcohols and polyalcohols, acids and tannins, with a persistent finish
and a pleasant sweet, fresh and fruity follow-through.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: It goes well with mature cheeses, red meat and game.

ABOUT THE WINERY: 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 30 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.”
