Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2017 - Fattoria della Aiola

A big territory. An extraordinary vine. Centuries of tradition and one great goal. To give life to a wine with personality and the right consistency to accompany the tasty dishes of Tuscan cuisine. These are the basic ingredients of this interesting Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG, proposed by Fattoria dell'Aiola. Sangiovese 90%, with Colorino and Merlot, this wine undergoes a long processing that begins with a phase of maceration of the skins that can last up to three weeks. In the meantime the wine is kept at a constant temperature of 28 C, in steel tanks with frequent pumping over. After racking, the wine is passed into wood, large barrels that will house it for at least two years. This is necessary for the slow refinement to come to an end and for the wine to be ready for the last stage of processing. Another six months, minimum, of waiting in the bottle. Only then is the Chianti Classico Riserva ready to face the market. Of great and noble structure, this red wine shows spicy notes deriving from the long aging in barrels. An austere wine, it evolves over time. That's why there's no hurry to uncork it. Properly stored in the cellar, it will know how to give great satisfaction for many years to come.

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.
