The villa of Vignamaggio with its fifteenth-century cellars offers a unique and engaging tasting experience. Here the wine production has a tradition of more than 600 years and the organic farm produces high quality wines, expressing the peculiarities of the different terroirs of the estate. The vineyards, which cover over 70 hectares, are cultivated according to the principles of organic farming and local varieties such as Canaiolo nero and Mammolo are used. In the cellar the entire winemaking process takes place with care, from the selection of the harvested grapes to the refinement of the wine in oak barrels. The wines of Vignamaggio want to express the very essence of the territory, giving a sip that tells the story of these hills. Among the wines produced, the Chianti Classico DOCG Terre di Prenzano stands out, a vintage wine produced solely with Sangiovese grapes and aged in oak barrels from 20 to 40 hectoliters for one year, and the Chianti Classico DOCG Gran Selezione Monna Lisa, with a dark purple with ruby flashes, which releases notes of dark cherries, plums and blackberries on the nose, and elegant and fine tannins on the palate.
