Chianti Classico DOCG 2017 - Fattoria della Aiola

Among the proposals of Fattoria dell'Aiola there had to be a great red wine from the territory. In this case it is a Chianti Classico DOCG. Classico, it should be remembered, because the grapes with which it is produced come from the historic area of the appellation and, specifically, from the municipalities of Castelnuovo Berardenga and Radda in Chianti. It is made from a blend of Sangiovese grapes, the vast majority, even 90%, with the remainder divided between a great classic of the area, Colorino, and a great international improvement such as Merlot. The vinification is simple and at the same time accurate. The wine is left to macerate for about two weeks at a controlled temperature in steel tanks, with frequent pumping over to extract all the colour possible from the Sangiovese grapes, which are generally rather stingy in their colouring capacity. The result is a wine characterized by an intense ruby red colour. The nose is fresh and lively, with notes of marasca cherry, pomegranate, violet and spice. In the mouth, however, it is balanced, soft, with fine tannins and a long harmonious aftertaste.

From an ancient fortified castle at the center of noble fratricidal battles during the bloody struggle between the Sienese and Florentines, to a group of Russian entrepreneurs who, in love with the place, decided to relaunch their wine project. In between, the transformation of the fortified castle into a refined manor house, an earthquake that destroyed a large part of the historic residence and even a Senator of the Republic, Giovanni Malagodi, who in the 1970s created the labels we still know today. To read it like that, this estate has lived through a lot of stories. And what stories! Today Fattoria dell' Aiola can count on a total of about 36 hectares of vineyards, spread over the hills of the communes of Castelnuovo Berardenga and Radda in Chianti. Sangiovese dominates over everything, although there are also small plots of other international varieties. From the manual harvest, to the resting in traditional large wooden barrels, the wine of the farm is produced with artisan care.
