Classico DOCG

Everybody has heard the word “Chianti”, but very few people know that the original wine, now called “Chianti Classico” was born on the Chianti hills, where Fattoria della Aiola is situated. The noble Chianti Classico wine has been produced for centuries in the Vagliagli area, and the territory where it is made has become the first officially registered winemaking zone more than 300 years ago, in 1716. The Black Rooster, always present on the Chianti Classico bottles, is the historical symbol of the Chianti Military League. Nowadays, the strict norms of the Chianti Classico production require this wine is made with minimum 80% Sangiovese and up to 20% of autochthonous or international red grape varieties present in Tuscany. Fattoria della Aiola makes its Chianti Classico blending at least 90% of Sangiovese with smallish quantities of Colorino and Merlot.
IGT Toscana
AIOLA IGT Toscana - where the creativity of the winemakers reflects the spirit of the territory. Free from stylistic constraints, Toscana IGT wines can be made in almost any imaginable form: dry or sparkling, red, white or rosé. It leaves the choice of grapes, production method and characteristics to the winemaker, as long as at least 85% of the grapes are coming from the specified geographical area. In the late 60’s the adventurous winemakers created what later became known as the “SuperTuscans” blending Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Aiola was among those visionaries, and our IGT wines are always bold and free-spirited.
