We are exited to be launching our first Gran Selezione - CANCELLO ROSSO

Fattoria della Aiola Cancello Rosso Gran Selezione exceeds the strict requirements set for the new Gran Selezione classification in 2013: the carefully selected grapes come not just from the estate, but from the single vineyard – Cancello Rosso, the Red Gate, two hectars – with an excellent exposure and unique quality of soil. The blend is comprised of 90 % Sangiovese and a small addition of Colorino and Merlot. The wine has been aged for more than 30 months in large oak barrels. Only 1300 bottles of this top-level tier of Chianti Classico DOCG will be available for sale, and 50 % of the 2015 vintage has already been pre-ordered. The winemaking team, led by the renowned oenologist Paolo Salvi, will produce Gran Selezione only in the best years, so production will continue to be limited.

Fattoria della Aiola, founded in 1936 by Giovanni Malagodi, was purchased by Russian businessman Iliya Elisejev in 2012. The new owner invested over 1 mln EUR in refurbishing the production area, replanting over 10 hectars of vineyards and modernizing production. When Chianti Classico Cancello Rosso qualified for Gran Selezione classification, Mr. Elisejev said: “I feel proud and grateful – proud for the Fattoria della Aiola team, whose hard work is recognized, and grateful to be a part of the Chianti Classico tradition, where the uniqueness of the terroir is best expressed in great wines”.
